Grow It Yourself | GIY

An automated, smart, self-contained growing system that cultivates plants from seed to maturity!

I was greatly inspired after watching the TED Talk about Digital Farming, delivered by the director of MIT’s Open Agriculture Initiative, Caleb Harper, which came up with the topic: This Computer will Grow your Food in the Future. The most important question addressed in his talk that really inspired me was What if we could grow delicious, nutrient-dense food, indoors anywhere in the world? And here the idea was born!

So, what I am trying to do is something like a box or incubator, which is able to create ideal climate conditions necessary for growth, providing exactly the amount of light and nutrients that a plant needs. I want to build a sunlight emulator, irrigation system, and climate controller wrapped into one elegant and modern design.”
