Dangle a miniature garden from your cell phone

Not the first time we've seen plants in little bubbles that you dangle from a keychain or cell phone, but this one is a little more fun because the plants are vegetables that you can transplant into a real garden once they reach a certain size. To grow cabbage, sweet basil, cherry tomatoes, or bell peppers, you put little seeds with water and soil into this teardrop-shaped clear capsule, wait a week for the seeds to sprout, then plant in a larger pot or garden. Made by Masaki Environmental Engineering & Consulting Co., this little toy will cost you 1,890 yen (about $17). Wear it on your device, as a necklace or earring, or dangle it from your rear view mirror (but I'm not sure how much abuse it can take before it dislodges from the soil and makes you sad).
