Bio­pod, the world’s first Smart Mi­cro­hab­i­tat created by Bi­ol­o­gist Jared Wolfe has been in­vented to save en­dan­gered species. It’s core value is to sup­port con­ser­va­tion of plants and an­i­mals

While con­ser­va­tion was the core think­ing be­hind de­sign­ing and de­vel­op­ing Bio­pod, the re­sult­ing fea­tures - a syn­the­sis of ecol­ogy and sus­tain­abil­ity makes it fit for mul­ti­ple uses - as an in­door herb gar­den, a vegetable gar­den, and an aquaponic cham­ber (that grows food with fish and fish waste). Jared Wolfe, bi­ol­o­gist and the cre­ater of Bio­pod says, “Bio­pod was created as a way to en­gage peo­ple of all walks of life for a com­mon pur­pose - to col­lec­tively make a pos­i­tive change in the world by sim­ply en­joy­ing what na­ture has to of­fer.”

Bio­pod mim­ics a nat­u­ral habi­tat by em­ploy­ing Aero­pon­ics, which per­fectly bal­ances oxy­gen and car­bon diox­ide just as nat­u­ral habi­tats are able to do. It is a sleek de­vel­op­ment in ecotech. Once you’ve got your herbs, veg­eta­bles, or pets all snug in your Bio­pod, you can reg­u­late tem­per­a­ture, light­ing, hu­mid­ity, ven­ti­la­tion and even rain­fall via an app on your iPhone or An­droid manually or let the app do it au­to­mat­i­cally.
