As admirable as growing one's own fruits and vegetables would be, it is not an easy task to undertake--alone, that is; MEG by Yradia, a product design studio based in Milan, Italy, changes that by connecting likeminded people together. It is an open source indoor green house that not only provides a great environment for the produce being grown, but also crowdsourced help when encountering difficulties.

MEG by Yradia lets people control every facet of the cultivation process including light-cycles, ventilation, temperature, irrigation, and soil PH. Yet what people might be initially drawn to is how well-designed the product is on the whole. A sleek box that lights up hot pink, it uses the same amount of as a flatscreen television. It is currently seeking funds on Kickstarter.
