Gardening by remote control

Now even we might have a shot at developing a green thumb.


Our appreciation for "Chia" nightclubs notwithstanding, we've never been much for gardening (desktop or otherwise). But we just can't pass up anything with a remote.

For that reason alone, this self-contained garden from the unfortunately named Smeg piqued our interest. No ordinary terrarium, the Smeg Home Garden is a mini-greenhouse that features three micro-climates that can be controlled by the remote, according to OhGizmo. The system can determine the levels of light, humidity, and temperature.

Be careful not to keep the remote too close to the plants, however. Some species apparently have the ability to control their own destiny.
