Picture of USB grass charging station
One day, i've see that on internet: .It is a charging valet for electronic stuff.
But 30$ is really not cheap for that. Now, i will show how to do it from yourself for less than 3$.

Does anyone know where to buy small amounts of synthetic grass everywhere I've seen has like a 240ft minumum.
You could try asking for a small sample if it's on a roll.

Yajbuilder: this is just a makeup to hide cables. I did that cause a thing that work as same cost 30$

I thought this was one of those electricity through air concepts- what did I miss? I mean, it looks great and all, but is this really what makes the organic cheese?
Yah, looks nice, but do we really need instructions for this?
Did you have the idea beforehand? It might be simple but thinking of it and showing people it finished makes a difference.
Probably not, but why should that matter? Anyway instructables though enough of it to put it in a email.
theREALcybercat (author) 4 years ago
Ya, of course, this could be a future new instructable. And thanks for all comments.

You could also use the wireless energy technology or use solar panels to charge, in case you didn't have a computer or outlet nearby.

could someone maybe figure a way to hack in one of those chargers that use magnetic inductivity? (PowerMat)

Grab a piece of sod from somewhere and make a deluxe version with living grass. Darn near free that way. :)
