The Skin Farming algae jacket using body heat to cultivate algae and offset CO2, envisioned as a future side-job for extra income.
In 2042, the Al-cology, one of the global leading algae production corporation, launched the pilot project called Skin Farming, attempting to overcome the challenge of increasing needs of algae cultivation for super-food and bio-fuel by taking advantages of the carbon exchange system.
Skin Farming recruits urban algae farmers to cultivate algae by wearing algae jackets. Human body heat is the desired temperature for algae to thrive. Farmers also follow an instruction to facilitate the growth by shaking the body and exposing to sunlight. In addition to the paycheck from Al-cology, urban algae farmer can gain extra carbon credits by offsetting CO2 while cultivating algae, which they can sell for dollars on The World Carbon Bank platform.
