Greener Gadgets 2009: Design Competition Also-Rans (Video)

While there were some genuinely inspired designs at this year's Greener Gadget Design Competition (check out the 2009 winners), there were some seriously questionable/funny entries. Thankfully they got their moment in the spotlight too. Check out a plastic device which tells you how well your houseplant is doing, an ink jet system to print employees' names on their disposable cups, a personal cigarette butt incinerator (The Zigarator!), the jiggy bed (make power while you make love), and the ecO ("the world's first self-operated self operator").
