Due to the upcoming edition of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of the main fairs and congresses on consumer technologies that will take place in Las Vegas (Nevada, United States), LG has presented its first intelligent greenhouse, a new type of appliance that can be installed in the kitchen to obtain vegetables that are fresher than those found in the best greengrocer.
At first glance, the LG Indoor Garden looks like a refrigerator; but inside it has several trays in which to plant seeds. LG developed a smart system that controls its own vital aspects such as light, temperature, and water to ensure that plants do not have problems and do not lack anything.
This appliance, which includes 24 planters and their different seedbeds, replicates the conditions of the plants' natural habitat, according to LG. Each planter or pot has everything necessary for the plant to grow, from peat moss to fertilizer, including, of course, the seeds themselves.
According to LG, this greenhouse would feed a family of four with their own crops. The greenhouse can grow 20 different varieties of plants, including romaine lettuce, arugula, chicory, and basil.
This smart greenhouse is part of LG's Smart Green movement, which includes the reforestation of millions of trees and the development of devices to produce sustainable food.
