The Ocean: SeaScraper

The self-sustaining SeaScraper would be anchored in areas with strong oceanic currents to power underwater turbines and provide endless free energy. The SeaScraper’s concave shape permits sunlight to penetrate the structure’s lower reaches, and a desalination plant would transform seawater into drinking water. In addition, the SeaScraper could be rigged to dispense nutrient-packed water that’d help phytoplankton grow and ideally foster a reeflike environment for fish to call home.
