This is seriously cool! One of my dreams is to have my own small garden and my other dream is to live in New York, this seems like it can help me combine the two!

Why rotate?

@huangdun Hi Dun! The watering system is at the bottom of the wheel — it rotates so that each plant gets watered at a specific interval. It also rotates to replicate natural wind/outdoor environment.

The form factor of this is probably the biggest improvement over others. With a circular design you can fit ~4 times the number of plants in the same footprint. The rotation keeps the rest of the functional elements simple by not requiring water piping across the entire wheel. This reminds me of a humidifier for the home. In particularly, the one we have at our house is the Boneco H680 and utilizes a very similar design, with a water reservoir at the bottom and a rotating water wheel: What's also interesting is the ability to grow these vegetables upside down, at least for a certain period of time. Seems like something that would be of value to zero-G (Space) use... Great stuff.
