Did the apocalypse ruin your crops this year? We’ve got you covered. Made in Japan by Dentsu the portable Chef’s Farm can harvest up to 60 heads of lettuce daily without a bit of sunlight. The idea is to provide locally-sourced vegetables to restaurants without the need for transportation. One thing remains unclear: how much water, electricity, and nutrients must be continually pumped into this $90,000 garden to produce such massive quantities of tasty tasty vegetation. Regardless, a pretty brilliant concept. (via treehugger)
