In a successful bid to make your life harder than it has to be, Constant Garden is a concept device meant to help you rest in the assurance that you're not missing appointments or annoying alert messages. However, instead of presenting this information on a helpful screen or pumping it through a single speaker, Constant Garden involves a couple dozen long-stemmed speakers, designed to shout out your reminders from their random-seeming array. Oh, and there are some nice and annoying garden sound effects to keep you stressed in the in between times. Brilliant. But hey, bonus points for the name pun, so this one's really a wash.
