Future Tech Farm [1] is a decentralized and distributed farm that consists of a series of small aquaponic grow systems [2] connected via the internet. Upon receiving a module, users open up their grow systems, fill them with water and fish, plant what they want, plug them in, watch them grow and engage with a community of technology-based farm systems. Participants can track all of their grow cycles online, see what other people are growing, and compare variables for improving yields.
