automatic garden



There are a number of plantgrowing appliances out there meant to sit on your countertop and look nice next to your iPod – but not the Omega Garden Carousel. This industrial hydroponic behemoth packs 1,500 sf of farming into 150sf of floor space with cylindrical stainless steel cages that take turns soaking in a nutrient bath. The plants don’t experience gravity as they are constantly rotating, making optimal use of the light spread by powerful fluorescent light bulbs. If my ceilings were twenty feet high I would snap one right up.
