We may soon find ourselves growing crops not outside in the sun, but indoors, without using soil and usual agricultural techniques. Vertical farming has been all over various sci-fi movies for decades, and now it’s finally time to try it out in real life. It uses hydroponics (no soil, only nutrient-rich water solution) to grow crops stacked upon each other using only artificial light. The whole idea may not sound so ‘yummy’, but the truth is, crops grow much more quickly this way. With the growing population of Earth, it would be only logical to develop alternative agricultural methods.

Vertical farms can produce 100 more crops than those using fields! Urban Crops is one of the many companies that are currently developing vertical farming. They use LEDs to provide the plants with light and special hardware that supplies each plant with the necessary nutrients. Let your Facebook friends know about this invention right now!

🟢 Energy harvesting concrete

Everyone is trying to make better use of concrete these days, and Laurence Kemball-Cook is not an exception. He came up with the idea to use modified concrete tiles to harvest energy from simple steps. His Pavegen tiles can convert the energy of a footstep into enough electricity to power up vending machines or street lamps.

Of course, this kinetic energy isn’t powerful enough to supply energy to something bigger than that, but it is a good start. Pavegen showed incredible results when special tiles were installed near the finish line at the Paris Marathon. They generated more than 4.7 kilowatt-hours of energy that could be used for about anything! While the tiles themselves are truly amazing, installing them isn’t as easy as one would hope.
