BRINGING LIFE TO WORK

A Seattle based team, O2U, consisting of Dustin Wang, the Product Manager, Aldo Torres the Full Stack developer, Tyler Jomg the Designer, Eric Hongm the Business Lead and Aaron Lim the Mechanical Engineer came up with the idea of how to solve the problem of boring and unwelcoming static workplaces and suboptimal air quality in the workplace that can cause fatigue and other health issues. By introducing technology, they have solved the problem of how the workplace can grow yieldable plants and crops. Plants that add life and color to the office, help oxygenate the air and supply food for employees. This concept is on task with the growing need that speaks to the work-life balance and making the workplace a place where employees are healthy, engaged and happy to be at work.
