Seedbomb

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 03, 2009

A project from Jin-wook Hwang:

Seedbomb is a non-military bomb that protects earth from worsening desertification and lessens sandstorms. […] When a Seedbomb is released from an airplane, Seedbomb is disassembled in the air and seed capsules inside of the bomb spread out widely and fall on the ground.

As individual seeds grow into plants, the case surrounding each seed breaks down due to the moisture generated by the plant through transpiration.
