That gadget is called the Flyto stick, and while it may seem unimpressive it’s purpose is excellent.
With population numbers around the world increasing rather rapidly, and the world struggling to pump out enough resources to feed everyone this little item might just be what we needed.
The company say this is the first time you will be able to replenish what resources you use.
The aim of the project was to help bees in their recent struggles against man, it also aims to help reduce the worlds carbon footprint, which has long been a major issue.
The nifty little device is question is called the Fytostick.
The world’s first hiking stick, which will enable hikers and farmers alike to plant as they go about their daily business.
How it works is while your out walking, using the stick as your guide/support, it then plants seeds of your choice with a simple downward motion of your hand.
Using what the company calls “secret technology” the stick then burrows a hole into the ground and at the same time plants a seed as it does. Then the rest is down to nature!
The gadget also comes with an app called MyFyto, which is not yet released.
The app allows users to track the distance walked, goals reached, seed counts, and how much you planted while walking.
Still in the development phase as of yet, with only a few releases.
The prototype and app have been well tested, tweaked and are ready to go.
They are currently running a campaign to help with the release of the project.
I know I tend to say this a lot, but this really could be the future of farming.
Light, bound to be affordable, practical, and helping loads of aspects of the environment at the same time.
It’s about time we gave something back!
