Pablo Vidarte was blessed with the ability to innovate. He began creating video games when he was eight years old. By the age of 16, he was taking against NASA and the Spanish army in a race to improve the efficiency of external combustion engines. “I wanted to perfect a method developed by NASA in 2002 to power automobiles. I was able to enhance efficiency by 60%, which was really impressive “Pablo said. He founded his first artificial intelligence startup when he was 18 years old. A year later, he launched Bioo, a ground-breaking company that generates power from photosynthesis in plants.
“Imagine being in the midst of a park or a street and being able to reach out and touch a plant to switch on the lights for that precise area,” Pablo told Scenes. “Consider archiving humanity’s memories in the natural world. Imagine storing audio messages in a library that doubles as an open field where you can interact with the plants and touch them. At Bioo, we do just that “Added he.
“We realised we were basically destroying the world, so we built things like solar panels and ways to keep things from becoming worse,” the 25-year-old stated. “But the next step is to be able to reverse the entire equation to restore that planet that we’re starting to lose.”
Bioo’s invention, on the other hand, was no easy task. To make his biological batteries a reality, Pablo enlisted the help of nanotechnology engineers and biologists who volunteered their time. It took a year for a prototype to be built and an investor to join the team. Bioo is altering the environment by converting plants into biological switches and generating sustainable energy from nature.
Pablo believes that when Bioo’s technology advances, soil-generated power will become a market leader in the worldwide energy industry.
