Underwater Eco-Village Plans Released
Sometimes science and technology boggles my MIND. And today was one of those days.
CNN released some incredible images of what Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut is designing and planning, an underwater village he is calling an Aequorea.
These 'oceanscrapers' will be constructed using recycled plastics from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. The design has plans for houses, as well as science labs, offices, hotels, sports fields and farms across 250 floors and reach a depth of up to 1,000 meters (3,280 feet). The Ocean is a huge resource too. Desalinated ocean water it will be used for drinking. Micro algae will be used for farming and organic waste. Also, sunlight would be provided through bioluminescence. So far, it's just in the concept and research stage. But other attractions like this have worked across the world, including a hotel in Dubai that has underwater rooms.
I couldn't be more excited about these images and the plans. Please excuse me as I sing "Under the Sea" for the remainder of the day. Ocean and Tech buddies-- what are your thoughts?
