The Alsatian start-up MyFood presents its connected greenhouse at CES in Las Vegas, the global meeting place for new technologies. This smart greenhouse works with fish. You actually have in the greenhouse a basin with carp. Their droppings are used as fertilizer to grow vegetables. The plants are watered with carp water. Plants which, in exchange, filter the water with their roots and clean the pond. This is called aquaponics.
