Biome of Life
Genius! The Biome is a miniature garden that can be nurtured via an smartphone or iPad app which controls the water, climate, and nutrients reaching the flowers inside. This work of art promotes the idea of “digital downtime” and is a bi-product of the fast-pace digital age of today, encouraging smartphone users to take time to take care for plants. The biome has low energy lighting that can replicate sunlight and contains sensors that link back to the device when connected. It is designed to incorporate different types of environment – tropical, desert, even herb garden – and can be easily controlled by even the least green-fingered of users.
On sale this Christmas at Dezeen Temporium design shop (but in London </3) This mini eco-system would fit so well in my downtown apartment in this Winter weather that seriously lacks some life.
