Guerilla Gardening

Guerilla Gardening

For those who don’t know it, Guerilla Gardening is a livewire concept that sees folks planting and sowing seeds in abandoned plots or unlicensed places. The idea stems from the cottonseed story of Moon Ik Jeom, the first Korean Guerilla Gardener. The tool showcased here is a handy one that is discreet enough for such operations.

Cooking Starts In The Garden

Cooking Starts In The Garden

It would be so easy to have your own vegetable patch to source fresh veggies and herbs from. There are two main obstacles though: lack of space and lack of a green thumb. To solve these two issues we have here the “Little Helper’ a cultivation pot with a combining app. The idea behind it is to help us grow and harvest our own vegetables and eat healthier (think GMO and Pesticides). I quite agree!

Grass Printer For Lawnly Creatives

Grass Printer For Lawnly Creatives

Move over dot matrix, because here comes the grass matrix. The Grass Printer is an automated mower that lets you create messages and art on your lawn. The mower’s smaller sized blades (resolution matters!) can selectively cut the grass to recreate whatever you sketch on its touchscreen. Small motors move the cutter shaft horizontally and vertically to create the selective trimming. The area of the art is defined by four sensors placed at each corner. Get one for yourselves and create the mother of all status messages. Of course on grass!

Bee Beautiful!

Bee Beautiful!

The Ru urban beehive concept focuses on aesthetics to encourage the reintegration of bees into city environments. The idea is simple: by enhancing the aesthetic, a deeper emotional connection can be created with an object that has stereotypically negative connotation. With its sculptural form, the Ru hive might improve human acceptance and raise awareness to the recent bee population decline. The beehive would be installed in parks, on greenhouse roofs or other predetermined urban areas.
