How do you reckon this works?

It's still in the crowdfunding stage but it looks like a really good idea if it works. That's the bit I can't get my head round though - compost in 24hrs? (Although they're quite careful to call it fertiliser while describing its use as compost).

Even if it were to use a lot of energy to convert the food waste to compost (which would be a huge negative for most people, I think), is it even possible?

I hope so because I think this could be a fantastic piece of kit - especially for people with small gardens, or live in apartments etc.

I'm not entirely sure why you'd need a remote app to start the process though - unless it puts the kitchen waste in for you presumably you'll be near enough to it to press the button :lol:

Could be another piece of technology rather like the Amazon Echo - a step too far.

I think it's probably similar to this one http://www.peoplepoweredmachines.com/na ... io-c30.htm
Just composting speeded up by using electric heating and stirring.
You could make one yourself with a bit on ingenuity, heat to ~130 degrees F and slowly stir. :wink:
