SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Pot Plant to improve plant growth

post-image
The main focus of this project is to design a product that will incorporate sound to increase the growth of indoor plants. Through this change of idea I am still able to make a positive impact on people all around the world. In helping people recover I am also able to help people Develop better mental health before they get into a bad situation. I would like your help in developing my idea and being able to get in contact with those who will be able to help my design develop into reality.

Brilliant idea Giselle. What materials are you thinking of using to create your building? Have you checked out the https://www.architecture.com.au/ , would also recommend looking into Humanitarian Architecture, see UNSW https://www.be.unsw.edu.au/www.be.unsw.edu.au/event/utzon-lecture-humanitarian-architecture

Very interesting idea, would love to see this tested in the real world.

Great idea Giselle, very creative. It will be very useful in withstanding weather conditions as you mentioned.

Very creative idea Giselle! This would definitely improve the quality of life of those people who live in areas suffering from intense weather conditions.

This reminds me of the dome house previously posted about, I'd love to see this done in the real world

Really great idea and well thought design and will surely make a difference in earthquake prone countries.

Hi Gisele,

A building material that is strong, light weight, flexible and sustainably grown in bamboo.  It's worth looking in to the amazing work of Elora Hardy, using bamboo as a multi-storey building material in Bali and beyond.  See https://theconversation.com/bamboo-architecture-balis-green-school-inspires-a-global-renaissance-121248 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK_UjBmHqQw

Great idea, Giselle. 

Do those structure have to be transportable or could it be used in permanent buildings, too, to make them more earthquake safe?

Well done Giselle - great idea - wishing you the best of luck.

If you get close to a prototype we would be happy to help you with crowdfunding.

With best wishes Jill

Hi Giselle,

Interesting idea.  Earthquakes have a number of scary and dangerous side effects and they often appear quickly. Which features of an earthquake are you trying to protect people from?

Have you considered the benefits of the sort of technology being used in avalanche backpack airbags? Perhaps a combination of an inflatable liferaft with multiple impact absorption layers and the ability to "surf" the shakes via a rounded hull with a weighted self righting centre?

I like this idea, Giselle, i think pot plants are a great way to have a small daily connection to nature when we are feeling stuck inside. I imagine you will be designing an interesting pot?  Perhaps it could incorporate, in addition to sound, some gentle mood lighting, or an interesting texture or game to encourage interaction or a way to personalise it.  Or maybe a "utility belt" for the pot that includes a little watering bottle, moisture probe and food pellets, seaweed nutrients or worm juice so the owner can care for it? 

Giselle @ 2021.06.03 5:54 AM

Hello all, thank you so much for your feedback!

I have changed my project, pivoting to a pot that will incorporate sound to increase the growth of indoor plants. I am keeping the essence of humanitarianism as a key aspect but moving towards a more domestic setting as this allows for a more tangible product.

I may continue the research into bamboo for my new product. Thank you for this helpful response!

Great question, if I was still continuing with this design I would be designing a transportable product. Eventually this could turn into a product for permanent building

Great ideas! Thank you for this feedback. At this moment I am prototyping the pot itself and may start researching and designing some of these ideas you have mentioned such as the utility belt.

A very interesting idea. This one looks similar and fun though unfortunately it seems COVID is a reason that it did not succeed. https://www.ideaspies.com/posts/a-smart-pot-that-shows-how-your-plant-is-feeling
