As people continue to embrace the technology that surrounds them on a daily basis, it is easy to forget to also appreciate the natural parts of the world; the Cybernetic Meadow Collection hopes to bridge the gap between the two extremes. It incorporates nature into the designs of home electronics.

Created by a website called The Consortium for Slower Internet, the Cybernetic Meadow Collection is comprised of such items as a phone charging dock with an interchangeable planter as well as a WiFi router hidden within a concrete planter ideal for moss and ferns. Clean and simple, the designs have a zen quality that will surely help calm the noise often associated with such technology. Stats for Nature-Incorporating Home Electronics Trending: Older & Warm
