Algaetor – bioreactor for home-grown algae

Algae have a chance to become the food of the future. Independent growing gives a sense of agency – we are the authors of our meal – we create it. The device is to bring algae closer, its appearance – a glass jug – suggests the aliment nature of the content. The cork base conceals electronic components that care for the proper environment for algae, and raises the vessel, allowing to admire these incredible, beautiful organisms.
