Have you ever wanted to grow your own food inside your home?
你可曾想过在家种植自己的食物?
Scientists in Finland have developed a device that may do just that.
芬兰科学家发明了一种可以实现该想法的装置。
It lacks soil and does not look like a normal vegetable garden.But, the small device, called the Cell Pod, grows edible plant cells in the home.
它没有土壤,看起来也不像平时的蔬菜园。但这个名叫Cell Pod的小装置可以在家培育可食用植物的细胞。
Lauri Reuter is a biologist with the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.He says that instead of using the complete plant as food, scientists take only a small part of it – cells – and grow them in a bio-reactor.These plants have much of the same nutritional value that a real plant has.
劳里·罗伊特是芬兰VTT科研中心的生物学家。他说并非用完整的可食用植物,科学家们只是取其中的一部分——细胞,并在生物反应器中培育它们。这些植物和真正的植物拥有的营养价值差不多。
The edible plant cells, once fully grown, do not look very good.The Finnish researchers say they also need to improve the taste.
可食用植物的细胞,完全长成后并不好看。芬兰的研究人员们说他们也需要改善其口感。
However, the Cell Pod can provide important vitamins and antioxidants, which are substances that help your body to be healthy.
然而,Cell Pod可以提供重要的维生素和抗氧化物,这些物质有助于维持身体健康。
Lauri Reuter adds that the new technology will not replace fields for growing fruits and vegetables.However, the Cell Pod can help people eat foods that are hard to find or that cannot be made in a sustainable way. In other words, the device could help save natural resources.
劳里·罗伊特补充道,这项新技术不会取代种植蔬菜瓜果的土地。然而Cell Pod可以帮助人们吃到难以寻找,或者难以以可持续方式生产的食物。换句话说,该装置可以节约自然资源。
All you would need to do is add the seed culture to the device, sit back and then wait.
你需要做的,就是将种菌培育放入该设备,然后坐着休息,等待收获。
Reuter says the seed culture looks a lot like a very small container filled with coffee.You put it into the device and give it water.The machine does the rest of the work.
罗伊特说种菌培育看起来很像一个装满咖啡的小小容器。你将其放在装置里,添上水。设备会进行其余的工作。
The researchers hope to have a version of the Cell Pod on the market in the next 10 years.
研究人员希望未来十年内可以将Cell Pod引进市场。
