Showcased at the QUT IVD Grad Show, Horizon 16, TPOT marks the end of my university degree.
TPOT turns discarded tea leaves into a natural soil nutrient. Instead of throwing out used tea leaves, disposing of them into the TPOT unit creates a pot full of soil ready to plant seeds in. Fully integrated with a smartphone app, TPOT alerts the user when the plant needs watering, or when it has grown old enough to be replanted in the garden. Prior to replanting, the app automatically re-orders plant seeds that will arrive to the user on the day of replanting. This ensures a continuous cycle of oxygen generation and sustainable practices within the home.
