natural fuse is an interactive project by haque design + research, which consists of a network of electronically assisted plants that act as a power source modulator. the plants all come with a standard household power socket that is limited by the capacity of the plant to offset the carbon footprint of the energy expended. if a single user’s plant isn’t capable of offsetting the device plugged into the socket, the plant can connect to its network of fellow plants via pachube to outsource the carbon-offsetting. the device also has different settings that allows users to take as much energy as they need ‘selfish’ setting or to take only what the plant and its network can offset ‘selfless’. but be careful about being selfish, because if there isn’t enough power for the remotely activated watering system the plant will suffer and won’t be able to offset the carbon as well.
