Growing veggies on your counter is neat. I love the idea and will probably try it very soon, but growing full-sized plants indoors, hydroponically, organically, and controlled by your smartphone? I’m in! Niwa has pioneered the first interactive system that controls the growing conditions 24/7 and lets you interact via a smartphone app to grow whatever you want, beautifully and tastefully. It comes in three different sizes, mini ($279.00), standard ($319.00), and premium ($359.00), and for the DIY type, there is a Niwa Makers Kit that you can buy at a fraction of the cost which allows you to design your own system for $183.00. It is currently available for preorder at Niwa and is being manufactured now. Shipping begins summer 2015. Forget the fish tank, I’d rather look at this beauty!
