As more and more individuals are yarning for fresh produce, high-tech home devices like this countertop hydroponic garden by Bace enter an area of demand that is increasing in magnitude.
Dubbed 'Rotofarm,' the product has a user-friendly design that pays homage to functionality and efficiency. It operates without the use of soil and "instead uses [a] mess-free nutrient and water reservoirs" to take care of the vegetation. The form of the countertop hydroponic garden takes the silhouette of a circle, which can rotate. A full circle is completed every hour. It is believed that this mode of growing allows for the plants to actually mature faster, especially since they spend some of their time in "negative gravity."
Countertop hydroponic gardens such as these were initially developed to satisfy the purposes of NASA.
