Designer Jin-wook Hwang from South Korea came up with the idea of replanting and reforesting arid areas using seed bombs. When airdropped, the bombs disassemble themselves, allowing the smaller seed-carrying pods inside to cover an area. A pod contains some soil and nutrients to encourage the seeds to germinate and grow. Additionally, it functions as a mini-greenhouse, which gives the seeds and seedlings the warmth and protection needed to grow into strong plants before being exposed to the harsh environment outside the pod. As the seedling grows into a full plant, the pod biodegrades around it, allowing the plant to mature.

funny idea - but humans do it better with their own hands

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
