New Delhi: Finland scientists have developed a peculiar mechanism which will enable cultivation of favourite fruits and vegetables inside one's own kitchen within a matter of days.
Eminent scientist of Technology Research Centre -- VTT, Dr Lory Reuter told UNI from Finland's Ispo that his team has invented "Cellpod" technique" which after being placed on the table would grow desired fruits or vegetables within a week.
Many three-D printed prototypes of fruit berry are being grown using this technology.
The young scientist said,'Using cellpod technique, around 200 to 400-gram berries are being produced within a week.
Our endeavour is to spread the reach of the technology so that everyone can take advantage of this incredible invention and add in their appetite the tasty fruits and vegetables churned out by this technique everyday.
Dr Reuter said, 'plant cell cultures grown in big bio reactors in laboratories are used to manufacture medicines and cosmetics but the cellpod's motive is to make food products after developing plant cells.
It is a very productive invention.
Using this mechanism, fruits and vegetables can be had by especially developed cells of plants.
In future, a person from any remote corner of the world would be able to grow his desired food product and too in his own kitchen!' He said due to negative impact of urbanisation and agriculture on environment, there is an urgent necessity to bolster the modern Agriculture Bio technology and 'Cellpod' is the first step in this direction.
Dr Reuter, who is busy with his research paper on "Protein production in Plant cell cultures" said,'Cellpod has been discovered keeping new technology as the base.
Similar to a lamp in design, the device is just like an incubator in which "undifferentiated plant cells" starts growing within few days.
A visible change is seen in the colour, size and the whole form of the cells of the fruits and vegetables.
Definitely the serve that would come in your after plate after a wait of just seven days would fill you with awe.
