    I found this kickstarter, seems appropriate to post it on here:
    Biopod - World's First Smart Microhabitat by Jared Wolfe — Kickstarter
    Climate controlled, humidity is controlled, light cycle controlled, it controls everything automatically. It's pretty cool. It would be great for some little frogs or even a smaller, more difficult species of chameleon. Some of the setups even come with plants appropriate for certain species of frog.
    I'd love to get one when they are available, it's the only way I'd be able to keep a herp right now since the enclosure controls itself and makes any necessary temp/humidity changes (I'm too busy to check it daily).
    What's everyone's opinion?

    Interesting but seems far fetched in my opinion. Far-fetched being the affordability part.

    I just don't get how one is going to be able to "grow" a frog

    I'm sorry, but I don't believe they are meant to "grow" frogs, just house them...

    You plant frog seeds, how else :)
    It's hard to find frog seedlings.

    According to the website they will cost between $300 and $1000 depending on the model you want. That's not too outlandish for this type of setup.

    Prob be closer to the 1k to have it automated in the described way.
    Which isn't bad if you could use it in a larger setup. I wouldn't spend that on a 30 gal size.

    I personally don't have that type of money, but if I did I'd get one. Nick (hubby)wants one for his desk at work, maybe for his birthday in June...

    Hmm, desk at work would surely be nice.
    I used to have a kingsnake at work. They made me get rid of it claiming the bulb used unnecessary hydro(prev owner).

    I'll get Nick a bike that generates electricity, so he can work, power his biopod and get exercise at the same time.
