Sarly Adre Bin Sarkum of Malaysia has designed the HO2 scraper, a self-sufficient underwater wavescraper that harvests renewable energy from the sea, then uses it to grow food.

Underwater architecture is particularly interesting to those concerned with rising sea levels due to global warming. The HO2 scraper harvests wave, wind and solar power and uses aquaculture and hydroponic food production technologies to grow food underwater.

Implications - The last few years have seen an increase in the importance of environmentally friendly devices and products. One of the best ways a company can engender good will is by creating products that explicitly exhort consumers to catch up with them in purchasing sustainable products and living a Green lifestyle.
