Helixseed is a biomimetic product designed to recover deforested land. Inspired by maple seeds, this capsule this capsule allows you to more efficiently spread seeds thrown from a plane.
Its self-rotating propeller design produces a gliding effect that, along with the wind, would scatter the seeds over much wider areas.
Made from biodegradable materials, helixseed decomposes after a time of landing, in order to let grow and feed the seeds it contains.
