SeedPod by Jennifer Broutin, a Media Arts and Science Master’s Degree candidate at the MIT Media Laboratory with the Changing Places group, is a modular miniature farm for urban living situations. It helps to solve the problem of bringing sustainable eating into the homes of city dwellers who don’t have enough space to grow their own food.

Using such technology as sensors, robotic components and energy capturing devices, SeedPod by Jennifer Broutin may be an interactive farming module, but it also provides safeguards so that nothing goes wrong along the way. More than that, the monitoring network helps facilitate a deeper understanding of the processes taking place for the users.

SeedPod by Jennifer Broutin uses less soil, fertilizers and absolutely no pesticides to grow both vegetables and herbs in the aeroponic system.
