Toshiba - it's laptops, televisions and "smart garden."

  Toshiba surprised development in the field of so-called "smart garden": the company has perfected a system of hydroponic technology for growing green salads without soil, right in the water.
That is, anywhere in the world can build a factory, producing year-round fresh salads. Specialists create at the "clean rooms" where the temperature is controlled, air composition, the amount of chemicals and even dust. All the necessary nutrients are added to the purified water, and the appropriate dose of ultraviolet radiation on plants receive special lamps.
As a result, this salad is not treated with chemicals (of course, if it is not provided technical process), there are no parasites and foreign microorganisms. Rigor of process technology at the absolute: before you go to the "clean room" employees are serious disinfecting procedures.
The company stressed that they are willing to help us integrate this technology in the field. Sounds like science fiction, but for our harsh climate solution is very relevant. If in areas with unfavorable climate (and we have them - the majority) to build several of these factories, we can solve the problem with a poor harvest, and the high cost of imported greenery. Not sure what the Japanese technology suitable for the cultivation of more important crops - such as cereals or legumes, but it may turn out to grow vegetables.
The company also develops the concept of Human Smart Community, which implies a constant development of new ways to get energy and rational use of natural resources. Together with the Honda company Toshiba has developed a charging station for electric vehicles, which use the energy from solar panels. The company also invested seriously in water purification systems and ozone generators, fitness bracelets and even robots (and not for fun, but for social needs - for example, care for the elderly).
Well, let's see what progress the company to reach this market.
