    Aug 8 2012: Create a small scale hydroponic system like www.verticalharvest.org to grow local food all over the place.
    this will reduce the dependency on other crops, weather related issues like droughts, and will provide local organic food year round to local communities.
    many small scale systems already exist, this would be used to automate the system and develop a process that can be reproduced world wide in any environment by anyone.
