In a bid to create sustainable buildings and more eco-friendly living spaces, a design group from Hong Kong has come up with fake solar-powered, puzzle-piece grass that would be installed on the roof of every building providing renewable energy to the inhabitants below.

The puzzle-piece grass looks and feels exactly like real grass and the puzzle-piece way in which it fits together allows enough room for real grass to grow through.

Implications - Consumers are constantly looking for ways to stay green-friendly. Products that feature an environmental aspect are appealing to those who don't want to sacrifice their lifestyles. Companies trying to increase their appeal could focus on this when coming out with their newest designs.
