Algaenesis / Kitchen Appliance


Taking algae as a mainstream food may be an effective solution to the global hunger. Because of its low planting cost and nutritional value comparable to staple food, algae can serve as a large-scale food source without consuming fresh water and arable land. Eating algae can reduce carbon emissions. With the help of Algaenesis, users can complete algae planting and processing at home, combining 3D printing to meet a variety of dietary needs, including healthy meals and sports snacks. Therefore, Algaenesis is a sustainable household food machine.
