Nature has a way of surviving by adapting and over-coming challenges and it does it without even thinking, it changes naturally. Humans can use nature’s survival techniques to solve our current resource scarcities and climate devastations by developing technologically-advanced, nature-based resolutions. People like Josh Smith from Reno, Nevada, and entrepreneurs from around the world have begun building the path to a sustainable future.
The article, “Trending: Spiders, Butterfly Wings Inspire New Solutions for Urban Ag, Renewables,” gives several examples of groups around the globe already creating environmental solutions.
Finalists of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation Ray of Hope Prize copied nature’s tricks including; Nexloop’s AquaWeb, motivated by spider web moisture collection, plants that horde water, and mushrooms that release moisture, developed a solution to urban water shortage; Windchill, mimicking thermal regulation found in animals, invented a power-free refrigerator; and Evolution’s Solutions, inspired by bacteria filtration, recycled food waste nutrients for organic farming.
In addition, activities like the Biomimicry Accelerator program, a year-long sustainability mentor project and, the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge, both serve as gateways to financial and commercial support for companies trying to solve conservational issues.
One prototype about to hit the market in Reno, Nevada is Josh Smith’s HomeGrown smart greenhouses. These light-weight yet astounding durable aluminum greenhouses assemble in minutes with section-size pieces to expand and fit any living situation.
Powered by a smart app, Josh Smith’s greenhouse showcases the reliability and automation that nature uses to thrive. The highly-advanced technology maintains your garden after a few simple set-up instructions. Completely rely on the system to not only monitor soil moisture, and temperature for light and fan regulation, also get tips and warnings if you need to intervene; otherwise, this garden requires no maintenance. Control via Wi-Fi everything with the touch of a tablet.
With 5 years of research and development and 3 years of testing in Reno, Nevada, this state-of-the-art grow machine is ready to hit the market. You can sign up now to be the first to receive an exclusive 50% discount once the Kickstarter begins.
