Lettuce-producing machine

Dentsu Facility Management Inc has begun selling a machine able to produce around 60 lettuces per day without the need of sunlight. At the moment, they are only available in Japan; the first clients are big restaurant chains because the cost is quite high: 75,000 euro (around 100,000 USD). Will we have some day our own refrigerators at home able to produce lettuces or other vegetables?

The pictures of this lettuce-producing machine reminds me of the pictures of the underground place that is located under Tokyo station.

    すごいな。I only need about one head per day. I hope they will make a portable version soon.
