Two years ago we first covered Tokyo's underground farm; It is called Pasona O2 and was set up as a means of providing agricultural training to young people who are having trouble finding employment and middle-aged people in search of a second career.

Pasona O2: Urban Underground Farming

Of course, since we first posted the interest in local food has increased dramatically and there has been much more interest in urban farming. We also came upon some new information: The Pasona Group has a traditional farm in Ogata, but they want the "freeters" (Japanese slackers who hop between part time jobs) to get a taste, so to speak. Technology – Urban Produce LLC. Vertical hanging carriers of seeded trays rotate on a conveyor around the growing unit so that each plant receives equal light and air distribution.

Technology – Urban Produce LLC

We can grow product in natural or artificial light, above or below ground. In the rotation, the carriers cycle by a station where water and nutrients are dispersed. This entire process is controlled by a computer system and can be accessed via the internet. Smaller Footprint. The vertical stacking of the product greatly reduces the space required: 16 acres of conventional farming can be grown on a 1/8 acre footprint. Cost Savings. Supports The Local Economy. No Seasons. Proprietary. Meet Market Demands Quickly. We have combined technology and hydroponics to create our patented High Density Vertical Growing System. We plan on implementing Urban Produce farms all over the U.S. and worldwide.

In its 4th year, Indoor Ag-Con focused on the technologies that drive the indoor agriculture industry, regardless of their origin. The event included an expanded exhibition hall as well as two full days of conference content, and a drinks party in the exhibition hall on the first evening. The seminar was tailored toward corporate executives from the technology, investment, vertical and greenhouse farming, and its customer industries, along with hydroponic, aquaponic and aeroponic experts from all disciplines. The event consisted of keynotes of varying lengths from industry leaders and academics, and extended networking breaks. The first day of the event provided an industry overview, while the second day focused on technical aspects of the industry. Day one focuses on the commercial aspects of the indoor agriculture industry.

Mind-Controlled Videogames Become Reality. Bionic humans are about to get an upgrade, thanks to monkey cyborgs. A - Given that decoding the human genome went from being something incredibly complex that would cost millions and take years to do, to something that can be done via mail-order and a couple hundred bucks in just a couple of decades, I doubt that it'll be centuries before we understand the human brain.

Bionic humans are about to get an upgrade, thanks to monkey cyborgs

Probably more like a few decades. B - We needn't develop directly analogous bionics to be a significant threat to what exists in nature (and ourselves). Consider an autonomous supply chain that was able to recreate all of its components without human intervention, perfect generational copying, as well as guided evolution of new versions. In nature, the network effect is really weak and evolution is random, but in technology, a network of individuals can aggregate and guide all participants, and guide evolution significantly more efficiently.

First of all, we don't need to understand the brain perfectly to make good bionics. This 'Bio-Bot' Walks On Command Using Actual Muscles. Researchers grow cyborg tissue that can sense its environment. New chemical circuits make becoming a cyborg even cooler. 3D Printing Droplet Networks. Peter Rothman Oxford University scientists have demonstrated a custom-built programmable 3D printer which can create materials with several of the properties of living tissues.

3D Printing Droplet Networks

The new type of material consists of thousands of connected water droplets, encapsulated within lipid films, which can perform some of the functions of the cells inside our bodies. These printed 'droplet networks' could be the building blocks of a new kind of technology for delivering drugs and potentially one day replacing or interfacing with damaged human tissues. Because these droplet networks are entirely synthetic, have no genome and do not replicate, they avoid some of the problems associated with other approaches to creating artificial tissues – such as those that use stem cells. The team report their findings in this week's Science:

Urban Gardening. Personal Home Pages and the Construction of Identities on the Web. Introduction It has been contended by media theorists such as Joshua Meyrowitz (1985) that the adoption of new media seems to involve a shifting or blurring of the boundaries of public and private.

Personal Home Pages and the Construction of Identities on the Web

Without adopting the stance of hard technological determinism (Chandler 1995b; 1996), we may perceive such a shift in the new genre of the personal home page on the World-Wide Web. Whilst the fundamental technical difference between the medium of speech and that of writing is that writing is automatically recorded, web pages introduce another key feature: what is written on a web page (and stored on a web-server) is automatically published on a global scale. Web pages which are ‘personal’ are simultaneously public, and it is such ‘personal home pages’ which are the subject of this paper. Bamboo-Pavilion-Structure-Design.

It seems everyone is interested in how to make your own beehive in a jar.

How To Easily Make A Beehive In A Jar DIY Project

Have the rows of organic honey jars at the farmers market got you thinking about starting your own backyard beehive? Cubit's Organic Living » How to: Save Heirloom Tomato Seeds. Saving your own tomato seeds is rather fun and has all sorts of benefits.

Cubit's Organic Living » How to: Save Heirloom Tomato Seeds

Preserving heirloom seeds, ensuring a supply of your own favourites for next year, helping protect seed diversity, making a giant mess of stinky fermenting goo, it’s all there! It’s also pretty easy. As part of our seed selling business we save fairly large quantities of tomato seed but the process is the same whether you are saving from a pile of heirloom tomatoes or from a paticularily tasty one you just sliced up for lunch. First things first, you need to get your tomato seeds out of the tomato. You can slice them in half, in quarters, scoop some out of the one you’re eating or just use my preferred method: Squishing. Next the seed pulp is ready to be combined with water in a container. Make sure to label each variety as you go as tomato seeds all look very similar and the coloured pulp is going to break down.

How 1 MILLION Pounds Of Organic Food Can Be Produced On 3 Acres. By Andy Whiteley Co-Founder of Wake Up World The quality and accessibility of our food supply is a mounting issue today.

How 1 MILLION Pounds Of Organic Food Can Be Produced On 3 Acres

With GMOs, chemical pesticides and low-nutrition processed foods now commonplace in the mainstream supply, taking control of your own food supply is one of the smartest things you can do – for your health and for your hip pocket. So, with limited space, how can we create an independent food supply? I recently came across this amazing video of a man, urban farmer Will Allen, who has figured out a self-sustaining system that can grow 1 million pounds of food every year, on just 3 acres of land, using the symbiotic cultivation of plants and aquatic animals in a re-circulating system. If you’re interested in starting your own Aquaponics system in your home, be sure to check out our exclusive special offer to Wake Up World readers at the bottom of this page. Hanging strawberries.
