Italian design company, DesignLibero has developed a garden appliance inspired by NASA called the ‘Green Wheel’. NASA’s
idea in the 1980’s was to grow produce in space with a spinning, circular device to counteract zero-gravity and utilize minerals in water.
30 years later that idea is close to making a debut. Evoking a modern Ferris Wheel, plant roots are inserted into the device, and every hour, circulate around a light ring.
