The farm-to-table movement preaches limiting the distance that food has traveled before making it into one's meal, but the AVA Byte lets consumers take farm-to-table a step farther. The smart indoor herb garden represents what might be called the table-to-table movement, since it lets consumers grow fresh herbs from the comfort of their own kitchens.
The minimalist, self-contained AVA Byte comes with everything that one needs to grow herbs, including soil-free plant pods, plant lighting, and a water reservoir. Consumers need not be green thumbs to grow herbs with the system, either. Thanks to its intelligent programming, the device automatically adjusts watering and lighting for optimal growth. All the consumer needs to do is pick their favorite herbs and make sure the AVA Byte is full.
For those who want to track and share the growth of their herbs, the AVA Byte also comes with a built in HD camera that can automatically capture time-lapse videos of the plants' growth.
