Buggy Box

TEAM: Brian Tien – Canadian – University of Waterloo


Families can buy a single BuggyBox for their apartment in Manhattan, or a small community from a remote town in Nunavut, Canada can invest in multiple units to create a sustainable protein farm. With the BuggyBox, the act of consuming food is no longer restricted by climate, location nor economics. The BuggyBox combines the farm, factory and the kitchen into one fully automated, mobile insect farm, thus giving customers the role of farmer, manager and chef.

Due to insects’ effective protein conversion, low carbon emissions and lack of land/space requirement, the BuggyBox’s size is minimized to fit in the parameters of a typical scaffolding system, so it can be installed onto existing buildings, or be constructed in areas where environmental qualities make it unsuitable for raising typical livestock. Instead of relying on a single large corporation producing meat of questionable quality and then transporting it to a local supermarket/restaurant, protein production sources can be dispersed throughout the city, existing quietly alongside its citizens. Depending on its use, customers can modify the BuggyBox with additional features, such as all-terrain robotic legs or a robotic kitchen system with its own recipe database.
