The official botanical name is Mimosa Pudica. It's also known as the Sensitive Plant, The Humble Plant or the Touch-Me-Not Plant.
The plant responds by opening its leaves when you tickle it. the plant folds them when you stop. You get a mini-pot, seeds and a peat pellet. The plant sprouts in a couple of days.
Testing Timer Wristwatch
College student Jordan Liss came up with the idea of this watch while undergoing some standardized tests. He was stressed out by the time constraints imposed on the english, math and science sections.
The Testing Timer Wristwatch shows students exactly how much time they have left to complete each section. It also provides a blinking track around the high-def screen to give a quick visual of where the student should be.
Local artist Kellie Mack started making these pens as gifts for friends and relatives. Each pen is made from Cocobolo wood which is also known as rainbow wood for its variety of colors, including orange, red, and yellow. Kellie hand-turns each pen that she makes.
