Eco Pod - An Algae Bio-reactor with Robotic Arms


This amazing concept is able to play the role of a temporary vertical algae bio-reactor. The construction was designed for Boston and its most impressive feature is the robotic arms that function with the help of a micro-algae mechanism. The latter constantly rotates the pods with the goal of assuring the most suitable growing condition for the algae.

In addition, the eco-pods are also meant to make people aware of the fact that the micro-algae can be used as bio-fuel, which can be produced vertically.

Designers mentioned that the Eco-Pod could serve as a research incubator, allowing researcher to study algae species and various possibilities of bio-fuel extraction. It is worth mentioning that the whole structure can be placed in one of the empty sites across Boston.
