Project Nourished combines molecular gastronomy with virtual reality to create limitless dining experiences. It uses 3D printed algae as the substrate, as well as a VR headset, an aromatic diffuser, a bone conduction transducer, a gyroscopic utensil, and a virtual cocktail glass. This technology has infinite possibilities and can also help with issues like weight management, diabetes and food allergies.
World-Class Cities in the Making: 10 Ideas Readily Implementable to Make Cities More Attractive and Dynamic
Algae is everywhere, it grows easily, and it's full of lipids that, when successfully extracted, have the perfect chemical makeup to be transformed into hydrocarbon fuel. The trick, as always, is to do the processing in a cost-effective and cost-efficient way, a goal that has been elusive so far. Enter Nevada-based Algae Systems.
End the Algae Assault: Great Lakes Mayors Should Push for Clean Power Plan and Clean Water Protection Rule
Do you have info to share with HuffPost reporters? Here’s how.
The effort to produce algae biofuels has been underway for many, many years, though you wouldn't know it given that there are still virtually none being produced at commercial scale. The hype about making "cheap, abundant fuels with nothing but sunlight and water" remains in spite of the reality on the ground.
Sara's work has garnered remarkable results, a eureka of sorts, which, according to Professor Anastasios Melis of UC Berkeley, is quite unique. She has been very clever, becoming an important figure in the algae as biofuel community. She managed to manipulate the cells in the algae in such a way that they yielded an amazing amount of oil. When Sara saw the results, she was sure something was wrong but there wasn't.
