Here's how their Zera Food Recycler works:
At $1,000 a pop the machines ain't cheap, but that hasn't stopped it from being successfully funded on IndieGogo: At press time they'd landed $335,498 on a $50,000 target. There are just ten days left to pledge, and after that you'll have to pay full retail for a Zera—$1,199.
Hey wait a sec—that's a NEW apple, you jerk!
