BY LAURA TAT. Inspired by some eco friendly electronic gadgets that work without batteries or being plugged in such as the Bedol water clock . Similarly, the human body is very much like a thin rubber bag full of salt water, the salt water (electrolytes solution that is in the body is design to specifically conduct electricity, so that the nerve impulses can reach the muscles.

Using organisms in the soil to create a chemical reaction that results in a tiny electric charge to give this grass a pulsating glowing heartbeat. It is a speculation on how important to life electricity is especially nowadays, the human body generates electricity, plantlife generates electricity, water, etc.

The chemistry it relies on to keep moving is actually more between the mud and metal. Added some common mud to jars of water and placed a carbon electrode in the mud and a second carbon electrode in the water. The resulting electrical current was strong enough to power a lightbulb or even a simple computer.
