Sprout: a pencil with a seed ™
Sprout™ is a pencil that wants to be a plant when it grows up. When it's too short to use, plant Sprout to grow herbs, flowers and more!
A pencil that grows
What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away you could plant them and have them grow into something delicious, beautiful, and fun? What if pencils could grow?
We asked ourselves these questions as students in a graduate product design course at MIT. We gave it a shot and Sprout was born. We're really happy to see the project bear fruit!
Funded on Kickstarter
We wanted to make Sprout happen but we needed help. We reached out on Kickstarter.com and successfully concluded our fundraising campaign on September 19th, 2012. We were blown away by the support we received from our backers and are currently hard at work getting them their Sprouts.
