Nano Garden lets you grow vegetables right in your kitchen

Growing your own vegetables is fun, healthy and saves money at the grocery store. The problem is, you need a garden, which makes it tough to do if you live in an apartment.

With Hyundai's Kitchen Nano Garden, even people without outdoor spaces can grow their own veggies. The Nano Garden is like a fridge that is designed to grow food rather than to keep it cold. It uses hydroponics and controllable light, water and nutrient supplies to make tending to your indoor garden as simple and possible.

There's no word on when this thing will hit stores, but it seems like a great addition to any kitchen that has the space for it.

TVP - Q&A Will the Regional Differences Still have the Greatest influences in the future as they are today?

Our problems today are enormous and global in their scope and impact. They cannot be solved by any one nation. The concept of common good is global in nature, but local in implementation.

We must start with what we have in common. All social systems, regardless of political philosophy, religious beliefs, or social customs, ultimately depend upon natural resources like clean air and water, arable land, and the technology and personnel to maintain a high standard of living. This can be accomplished through the intelligent and humane application of science and technology using a global systems approach. When money and self interests are outgrown, interaction between nations won’t be based on self interest, but on mutual interest. This approach will help eliminate artificial boundaries that separate people.
