As the urban areas grow even more crowded and the open spaced gardens become a dream for every citizen, Tom Gould comes with an amazing solution, that will become the dream come true for many of us. This system is called U-Grow and is a self sustained, indoor Aeroponic growing system, based on nutrient reclamation from organic kitchen waste. The U-Grow is a perfect solution for people who wish to recycle waste and grow their own produce and for those who have limited or no garden space. To use the product, the users have to fill the 10 Liter composting tank with organic kitchen waste, then place the seeds on the Nutrient Membrane. With the U-Grow the produce is ready for harvest 4 times faster than using soil. After harvesting is completed, the users have to empty out the waste for either council collection or home composting.
The U-grow can be used to grow herbs, salads, strawberries, pepper and chillies. The users are also able to grow small flowering plants, perfect for growing seedlings to then re-pot. The U-Grow is a unique indoor growing solution, which brings that colorful garden you always dreamed of, into your own home.
Compact mobile phone designed for Sony Ericsson. This mobile phone is a personal, friendly object which is wearable around the neck. The user can use the three buttons (Busy, Accept, Reject) to handle the calls. The ‘Accept’ and ‘Reject’ buttons work in the regular fashion while the ‘Busy’ button allows the user to record a message such as ‘I am in a meeting right now’. When the button pressed during an incoming call, the phone plays the message for the caller. The concept of “call priority” is also introduced here. This is a feature which allows callers to set a priority for the call, such as emergency, normal, fun, etc. In return, the peeking display of the device glows with a certain color for certain priority levels when ringing. Will we see it in the future ? Let’s wait for Sony Ericsson answer …
