It’s basically a tiny ecosystem that purifies the air in your home.

The quality of the air we breathe is pretty important. With our increasingly urbanized world and the rise in apartment dwelling, often the air we breath is of low quality.

Apartments deal with issues surrounding mold and dust, especially in those with fixed windows, and it can be difficult trying to eradicate these problems from your dwelling. EcoQube is trying to tackle this problem in an innovative way, with self-contained hydroponic devices, including their new EcoQube Air.

The Air combines a HEPA-like filter with the ability to allow plants to oxygenate air to improve the quality of the air in your home. It uses a phone app to help simulate normal day/night cycles and will humidify your home and can even help improve your mood. You can grow purely ornamental plants or even foodstuffs like scallions or herbs.

It’s true that there are a lot of other indoor terrariums on the market, but EcoQube hopes to add additional value with their air filtration module. They also want to educate the masses on permaculture, hydroponics, aeroponics, and sustainable development. Lofty goals indeed.

If you like the idea of having your own indoor garden, you could do worse than heading over to the Indiegogo Marketplace to pick one up.
