Livesglass - Your Pocket Sized Greenhouse
Livesglass is an innovative device for those who lack greeneries in their home or office, or feel that growing houseplants is cumbersome. It provides a low-maintenance, fuss-free way for individuals to have plant life in their environment. A concept inspired by the hourglass, Livesglass is also a metaphorical reminder of how important it is to protect our environment.
We are excited to be featured on BackerClub.co! They are the top community for people who are very serious about Kickstarter and we are really looking forward to the feedback and support from their community of super-backers!
How it works:
The Livesglass planter irrigates itself through drip irrigation; simply water your Livesglass via the mini water tank located at the top. The water slowly filters into the flowerpot, so there’s no need to worry over excessive or insufficient watering. The opening at the bottom enables oxygen to be produced as a result of photosynthesis, which is then emitted for air purification.
Livesglass is more than a modern-look decor for your home or office, it also provides a stress-free air purification system.
Thanks to the specially designed valve system in Livesglass, a full tank of water can last up to 7 days, so there’s no need to worry if you travel overseas or are away from home.
Miniature Plant Choices:
So far we have tested the following plants:
We would like to receive your planting experience via email, so we can add more plants onto our list.
Micro Fiber Cloth
Root – Dual Function Display Base / Lid.
Based on comments received, pledges have been revised. For every purchase of 2 units at full price (not including early bird special) or more, you will receive 2 or more free bases (priced at $15 AUD each) this will vary based on units purchased:
ie 2 units = 2 free bases.
2 + units = equivalent number free bases.
The Root (base) has dual function usage, it can be used as a lid to reduce water evaporation and also as a base to increase aesthetics.

Possible Design Changes:
We are still refining Livesglass to achieve the best possible user experience.
Craftsmanship (Truly Handmade):
Each Livesglass planter is handcrafted with the most exquisite handcraftsmanship. Making one piece requires a state of the art craftsmanship to achieve a better finish. It also means each individual Livesglass has its own unique characteristics. Each Livesglass planter must go through over 20 different manufacturing processes before it reaches the end user, and it truly is the world’s first double wall hourglass-like precision product.
Our goal is to ensure the entire production line set up is completed by September 2016. By mid-December 2016, we would like to commence full production, and if everything is in order, we will immediately dispatch the Livesglass to our backers. Dispatching Livesglass to end-users on time is very important for us.
Testing is crucial for us to identify any issues with Livesglass. Our team has conducted many trials in growing various plants in Livesglass to confirm its primary function. However, various weather conditions may cause different results. We will continue further testing to gain more information which will be posted on our website.
Risks and challenges
Livesglass is almost complete. We are currently undergoing some refinements, and our team is currently liaising with our factory to make sure we deliver Livesglass to end users at anticipated delivery times. There are some challenges which may cause possible delays, but the main design is confirmed and pre-production proofs have been approved. If we receive sufficient contribution from this campaign for a production run, we hope to dispatch Liveglass promptly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
