Anything that flies the green flag is a welcome addition to the array of resource depleting devices in our homes. The Bedol Eco – Friendly Water Powered Clock is as environmentally sound as they come – literally just add water.

The clock doesn't need batteries, mains electricity or even winding up, instead it acts as a kind of fuel cell to create a flow of electrons from liquid. Merely fill the reservoir with water and a dash of lemon juice for acidity and the clock will run for 6-8 weeks, creating zero emissions and no pollution. There is no need to reset the time between water changes as a built in memory chip keeps track of it.

The 4” x 3.5” clock, while devoid of any fancy features, is a recession friendly USD$16.00 and is available in four colors. Although environmentally a small step in the right direction, will this type of technology continue to be applied to home electronics on a larger scale? Only time will tell.
