Butterfly wings and spiders have just inspired new technology to aide in climate change and water loss. Studying how these insects can store and collect water has motivated this new idea. This notion is based in New York City, called NexLoop. The general population needs further sustainable ideas. There is a growing demand of climate change, water management, and different energy products needed now.
NexLoop focuses their energy on food shortages by creating a sustainable product. The emphasis is on greenhouses in all different areas, including schools and their communities. One of their products, AquaWeb, attempts to contain and store atmospheric moisture much like that of a spider web. This will show much promise to greenhouses, vertical farms, or container farms. All of these systems need the moisture and don’t have an in ground water system.
The NexLoop prototype was recently awarded a prize for their new technology by the 2017 Biominicry Global Design Challenge. A new hope and vision for the future, ecological production of food.
The increased demand for sustainable greenhouses, has provided Joshua Smith with a great idea for the future of food production. Josh Smith, Reno Nevada, is CEO and Founder of Modular Greenhouses. His plans for the future are simple. Expand our food production through sustainable methods and ideas of home-gardening. Children are now more than ever being fed unhealthy junk-food. This leads to obesity, and future issues for children. Josh Smith in Reno, Nevada, would like to change this with his sustainable greenhouses.
Mr. Smith, Reno Nevada, has fifteen years of startup experience. Many of the products he has developed have went to market. Modular Greenhouses are coming to market in several weeks. All of the greenhouses are self sustainable and controlled automatically. You can control temperature and watering all from an application on your mobile devices. These houses have a hinge house design, they can be put virtually anywhere around your yard. They are also extremely temperature resistant. They can withstand a category 4 hurricane, and/or eighty pounds of snowfall. Josh Smith’s Reno, NV-based company has a plan to change the future of greenhouses.
