The 'Planty Cube' is a smart vertical farming solution that has been developed by the South Korea-based agriculture and IoT startup n.thing as a potential solution for cities to help them grow produce in small spaces. Shown off at CES 2020, the vertical farming solution keeps the functionality of a 40-foot smart farm concealed in a shipping container-like enclosure. The interior has shelves and rows filled with capsules called Pickcells that can be used for growing high-quality vegetation in an automated hydroponic manner thanks to a computer-operated system.
The 'Planty Cube' won an Innovation Award at CES 2020 and is capable of being remotely controlled to further enhance the hands-off functionality of the farming system.
