NASA-Inspired Garden Grows Plants In A Ferris Wheel

In the 1980s, NASA made a hydroponic wheel that was never developed into a functioning device. Thinking that was a shame, DesignLibero picked up the idea where NASA left off. The resulting concept is called The Green Wheel, what studio head Libero Rutilo describes as “an iconic garden object for residential use, like a TV.”

The Green Wheel is essentially a mini ferris wheel, grasping plants by the roots and spinning them around the circle once per hour. At the bottom of the ride, a water reservoir feeds water to the roots, while all the rest of the way around, each plant has an equal opportunity to soak in light.
