WHAT CAN YOU USE BIOPOD FOR?
To grow a pristine environment for your pets. Current products are poor reflections of natural habitats. They require constant upkeep and maintenance. Biopod is an enclosed ecosystem that requires limited maintenance. The Biopod App makes it easy to set up the perfect conditions for your pet's new home.
To grow a year-round garden. Biopod combines the benefits of an aquaponics system with the ideal conditions of a greenhouse – right inside your home. Just a few of the many things you can grow include herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, peas, etc… A great source for fresh salad and more! Biopod will care for your garden, measure the soil conditions and tell you when it's ready for harvest. It will optimize growth for maximum production.
To add a low-maintenance enhancement to your home decor, even in small spaces. Biopod creates a beautiful and relaxing backdrop for your living space. No time to take care of your plants? Biopod's automated, low-maintenance system will take care of everything from lighting to watering, while still offering opportunities to manually mist, seed or prune, if desired. All you have to do is enjoy the pleasure you will receive from your Biopod! A great addition for urban dwellers and seniors.
To educate minds, young and old alike. Biopod makes a great educational tool and is a fun way for kids (of any age!) to learn about nature and the delicate balance an ecosystem requires. Add a reptile to your Biopod and watch the wonderment and joy it will bring. Biopod helps to build an awareness not only of life inside the 'pod, but also of the sensitive environment all around us.
To enhance the classroom experience. Biopod makes a great educational tool for visual and hands-on learning in classroom settings. Teachers and students can see different aspects of their environment including soil conditions, gas levels and moisture- all in real time. Classrooms can share their Biopod data with other classrooms from around the world and collaborate on observations and best practices.
To encourage creativity, productivity, lowered stress and increased well-being in the work environment. Studies show that these are benefits which can be reaped when greenery and nature are included in the work space. Biopod has a sleek and beautiful design, which is compatible with nearly any office size and decor, and the fully-automated system makes it easy to care for.
HOW SIMPLE IS BIOPOD TO USE?
HOW IT WORKS IN MORE DETAIL
BUYING COMPONENTS INDIVIDUALLY CAN BE COSTLY
All Biopod models include all of these components and much more at a fraction of the cost.
The Biopod Cloud. The Biopod Community.
Each Biopod has the capacity to connect to The Biopod Cloud. Information from your Biopod can be shared with others around the world and vice versa, should you choose this option. This allows our Biopod community to draw on each other's experiences and wisdom. The data collected from our Biopod community can then be used to create better environments and best practices. Additionally, it will be a great tool for users who are not quite sure what they want to grow. Have a famous green thumb you follow? See what she's growing and tell Biopod to replicate it!
biopod one is the perfect addition to any countertop. Ideal for a Herb or Vegetable garden, it maximizes growth by maintaining optimal greenhouse conditions. biopod ONE has the full capability to recreate many habitats and is also ideal as a vivarium for your plants or small animals.
biopod terra is a great piece of décor for any home or office - equally useful to create an amazing place for your pets to dwell or as an artistic landscape of your choice
biopod aqua works like a complete ecosystem, where the fish in the aquarium provide nutrients to the plants through a permanent active filtration system that incorporates a living wall. the AQUA can also be used as an aquaponics system and also includes all components to convert it into a standard vivarium.

FUN WITH JARED'S SON
Invented by a biologist, Biopod's original purpose was to mimic the pristine habitat of a rainforest in order to help save endangered frogs from extinction.
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. REALLY.
Individuals understand that the world is facing dire consequences but beyond conventional means such as recycling and buying locally etc, they feel powerless to do more.
Biopod provides a simple, affordable and low maintenance solution. With Biopod, individuals can now realize the immediate effects of their contribution to the environment.
Risks and challenges
Product development and production can be challenging. Manufacturers and suppliers of our parts could possibly delay delivery. If there is an overwhelming demand (100,000 or more units sold) we may experience some delays from our suppliers or manufacturers.
Software development can sometimes require extra time in order to create the optimal user experience. We anticipate on-time delivery with our development team but we may experience some technical challenges as our system and algorithms are quite complex.
Our team has over 15 years of experience in product development and our cloud and web engineers will be some of the top developers worldwide. With our experience and resources, we are confident that we can deliver the first 10,000 units without delay.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
