Comments Off on Urban Cultivator Grows 100% Organic Hydroponic Greens in a Stylish and Fully Automated Indoor Garden

Many of us would love to eat fresh and local produce all year round, but doing so can be difficult and expensive unless you have the time and space to grow your own food. With the Urban Cultivator , however, growing organic and nutritious greens for your family has never been easier. No bigger than the footprint of a standard dishwasher, this fully automated kitchen appliance plugs into the existing water and electrical systems for easy installation. Once you add the all-organic plant food into the Urban Cultivator, the pre-programmed indoor garden will regulate the water and air conditions so that all you need to do is harvest and chow down on the healthy, hydroponic greens. + Urban Cultivator The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on 17 Year-Old’s Science Project Speeds Discovery of New Flu-Fighting Drugs

When most of us were 17, we dreamed of owning our own car and the freedom that would come with college admission. But Eric Chen dreams of much more. This California high-school senior wants to change the world, and if his collection of first place prizes from some of the most prestigious science fairs in the nation is any indication, he’s already well on his way. Chen’s groundbreaking project uses computer modeling to zero in on chemical compounds that could be effective at fighting the dreaded flu. The project took top honors at the Google Science Fair, the Siemens Science Fair, and most recently, the  Intel Science Talent Search  competition, and has already led to the discovery of some promising flu-fighting drugs .
