Computer Grows Wheatgrass In Temperature-Controlled Soil
Tech and organic combine as the heat from the computer controls the environment for the living plant life.
Tech geek Mike Schropp, of Total Geekdom, has built his own ‘bio computer’, a mixture of tech and organic elements, that grows wheatgrass in his basement. After reading different studies and papers on the effects of soil temperature and germination with wheatgrass, he became hooked on the idea of using computer heat to control the temperature of the soil. Using a donated computer and a couple of extra components that cost just $10, Schropp made some modifications to take advantage of the heat generated by the computer in order to warm the soil and assist with germination and growth.
