Urban Hydroponic Bus Delivers Fresh Food and Water

August 18, 2012 by

Food & Water 2030 is Argentine industrial designer Nicolás Chacana’s concept for the cultivation of hydroponic produce in a mobile farm, specifically, an urban vehicle that grows and delivers food and drinkable water. 

I would like to know how energy efficient the concept is. The delivery of fresh food is a good thing for sure, but is this the most efficient way to do so?

The designer envisions the concept in a future scenario, say 2030, when he projects that pure water and food will be scarce due to contamination, global warming and biofuel production. But, wait: hasn’t that day arrived already in many locales?

    The Alpinist is a very detailed and atmospheric game along the lines of Seiklus. Stylish trade-mark Craig pixel art grace the work from beginning to end. Little things like snow particles, doors swining in the wind, and wavy flags makes each screen interesting to look at. While the Alpinist is pretty, the sluggish controls (possibly an effort to capture the effects of numbing cold?) prevented me from enjoying the game to as much as I could. The ending screen suggests future alpinist games to come! Bring it on Craig! Good information here. I really enjoy reading them every day. I’ve learned a lot from them.Thanks so much for sharing this information. Greatly help me being a newbie.

    What a great idea, hopefully someone will fund this and we can make this concept a reality. Would be great for cities and dense urban areas, especially FOOD DESERTS!
