Vooking® introduces Sproutr - the world´s first growing habitat for sprouts and microgreens.
Vooking® is launching a crowdfunding campaign to source the production costs, on kickstarter, early 2017.
LINZ, Austria – 08. November 2016 - Vooking® introduces the world's first smart growing habitat, specifically for sprouts and microgreens that fits into your home and no longer requires the attention that traditional devices need. Once started, the sprouts will grow in their new environment through an efficient irrigation technique by using an ultrasonic vaporiser that utilises every single drop of water. It has never been easier to grow sprouts at home.
To enhance the experience with sproutr, the remote control via smart devices is also available and recommended. The Sproutr App, free available for iOS and Android, is packed with a lot of features, that provide ease for growing sprouts and microgreens more conveniently. Once the sprouts are ready for harvest, the App will send a notification to the user. You can also explore a wide database of nutritional values, recipes and information for intolerances. We've also created a helpful recipe blog that offers inspiration for cooking with the new superfood.
“We are totally thrilled, with the development of Sproutr. A thousand year old tradition merged with cutting edge technology, packed in timeless and unique materials. Sproutr Brings more convenience into everyday and contributes to a better and healthier life of our users.” said Stefan Radinger, co-founder and designer of Vooking®.
State of the Art Technology
The new custom-designed irrigation makes sproutr the most efficient growing habitat ever. An ultrasonic vaporizer irrigates automatically and accurately to the entire Sproutr in seconds. As a result individual growth milieus for various sorts can be created. The irrigation of Sproutr is extremely efficient in comparison to conventional growing devices and saves more than 80% on water.
Material & Production
Sproutr is generated out of proven and exclusive materials, manufactured with cutting-edge technology. Sproutr essentially consists of four parts, the glass donut, the lid, the water reservoir and the controller unit. The donut is made of hand blown glass that acts as a window into the growing world of the Sproutr. The lid and the water reservoir are precise products out of stoneware, which helps regulating the water balance in the micro cosmos.
The entirely sprouting process, rethought and reengineered for a completely new experience. The multiple patent pending designs, makes Sproutr the best and most advanced sprouting habitat ever. The lid, shaped for easy opening from outside, connects the water reservoir and glass donut to assure the liquid flows seamlessly, so the best possible spread of mist is ensured.
Sprouts & Microgreens
Sprouts are a superfood, they contain lots of healthy nutrients, minerals, vitamins and precious enzymes. Furthermore they encourage natural processes and strengthen the immune system. The germination unlocks the chamber for body efficient absorption. This means sprouted seeds are one of the most efficient ways to absorb nutrients of various seeds, legumes and grains.
