The Smart Microhabitat

Tell Biopod What You Want to Grow or Raise

Biopod is an app controlled microhabitat that automatically regulates temperature light, humidity, ventilation and rainfall. Simply tell the Biopod App what you are wanting to raise or grow and Biopod will create the ideal environment for your plants or animals.

Plant and Seed

Plant or seed your favourite species of plants into the Biopod. Are you a Novice? Our app will guide you through each step making suggestions along the way.

Watch it Grow

Your habitat will be up and running in no time. Enjoy the benefits of a fully automated system in action and never worry about environmental settings.

 

How Biopod Works

Grow Anything!

Biopod makes it easy to grow anything from a mini rainforest for your pets to a herb and vegetable garden for your kitchen. Tell the Biopod App what you want to grow or raise and it will create the ideal environment for your plants and pets.

Technology

Biopod App

The simplest way to control your microhabitat. The intuitive app allows you to create the ideal environments based on the species of animal or plant you choose to grow. Custom mode allows you to control your setting manually.

Integrated Misting

Replicates the unique rainfall cycles of natural habitats. The 2 liter reservoir allows for hands-free watering and hydration of your Biopod microhabitat.

  Biopur Air injection

Our patented Biopur Air Injection system combines aeroponics with advanced substrate and ventilation technology, perfectly balancing oxygen and carbon dioxide while maintaining life sustaining equilibrium. This system closely replicates natural air patterns that occur in real habitats.

 

UVB CCFL

A compact but powerful UVB emitting CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) replicates the sun’s natural output, safely allowing vitamin D synthesis in animals while providing a growth advantage for a range of plants.

 

Sunlight LED Panel

The industry’s leading LED light panel closely replicates the natural sunlight spectrum. This provides a soft 5000K color temp and high PAR value which boosts photosynthesis and promotes plant growth.

 

Integrated Heating

Individual heaters regulate the temperature in both the substrate and air. This allows for differential temperature controls to suit different species needs.

 

Advanced Sensory Feedback

Integrated sensors continuously monitor and regulate temperature, humidity, rainfall and ventilation. This provides optimal climate conditions for your Biopod.

 

Biopod Cloud

The Biopod cloud analyzes your input settings to create the ideal environment for your plants or animals. Our species parameters combine information gathered from more than 50 years of historical and biological data to replicate the perfect ecosystem.

 

HD Camera

Full 720p viewing and sharing of your Biopod from anywhere in the world through the Biopod mobile App.

 

Wi-Fi Connected

Wi-fi connectivity pairs your Biopod to the app and cloud server.

 

Infinite Uses for Biopod

Animals

Create 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.

Herb & Veggie Garden

Grow a year-round garden. Biopod combines the benefits of an aquaponics system with the ideal conditions of a greenhouse – right inside your home. Some of the many things you can grow include herbs, lettuce, tomatoes, peas, etc… A great source for fresh salad and more!

Home Decor

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.

   

Educational Tool

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.


Classrooms

To enhance the classroom experience.Biopod makes a great educational tool for visual and hands-on learning in classrooms. 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.

 

Offices

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.

 

 

Conservation – Making a difference

Biopod is partnering with conservation groups from around the world. Our technology is being used to promote conservation of both plants and animals. We’re pleased to partner with some of the leading conservationists on our planet to rescue and preserve species that could otherwise go extinct. We’re passionate about all life and the preservation of frogs was the the catalyst for creating Biopod. Frogs are “canary in the coal mine” indicators and hundreds of species are dying off each year. Our goal is to help save as many species as we can. Growing locally and organic is key to sustaining our planet. By cutting out the supply chain on even small items, we can reduce transportation and pesticide emissions. There are huge benefits to be realized from urban farming; most importantly, knowing exactly what’s in our food.
