    Algae suit generates food to feed you

    Algae suit generates food to feed you
    Gear  /  Other
    The algaculture symbiosis suit designed by Michael Burton and Michiko Nitta. The symbiosis suit is designed to make food for you as you go about your daily routine. A number of tubes, placed in front of your mouth, harness the CO2 you breathe and feed it to an ever-growing population of algae which lives in the suit. The self-sustaining algae suits are made up of plastic tubes that sprawl all over the body, making up head pieces and body suits.  Green algae pumps through the tubes, coloring the transparent vessels in varying shades of green as it swirls and circulates around the network of plastic. The suit debuted at a recent event at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
    "Algaculture designs a new symbiotic relationship between humans and algae. It proposes a future where humans will be enhanced with algae living inside new bodily organs, allowing us to be semi-photosynthetic. Almost enabling us to become plant-like by gaining food from light. As such, we will be symbionts (meaning that both entities entirely depend on each other for survival), entering into a mutually beneficial relationship with the algae."
