Grow the garden you want in your room with Biopod

FarmVille has always been an addictive game to play online, but how fun would it be if the plants could be grown physically at your home, in your room? Well, now you can with the help of Biopod, a self-contained ecosystem that lets you grow your own plants and gives shelter to small living organisms. An inbuilt Wi-Fi connects the Biopod to your phone and home Wi-Fi, which alerts the user and helps them maintain the climate and the growth of the plants. Each Biopod is inbuilt with misting nozzles, LED light panels, humidity sensor, camera, fitting/tube connectivity and a living wall that helps with the growth in the enclosed environment. t2 took a look at the terrariums in Aqua Vision at 2A Elgin Road.
