Soon you will be able to live in the middle of the ocean thanks to this sphere made by 3D printing


Japan is one of the countries where more technological works are projected practically every day, some, without a doubt, as spectacular and impressive as the one that I want to present to you today, a kind of sphere made by 3D printing that would allow us to live in the middle of the ocean.

This project, baptized with the name of Ocean spiral, has been devised by the firm Shimizu, an idea where the idea form of being able to create a sphere that we could place in the middle of the sea is proposed to us literally and that, inside, would contain nothing less than a city. With this peculiar shape, as announced by those responsible for the idea, the intention is to vertically connect the surface of the ocean with its depths.

Shimizu is the name of the company behind the design and creation of the Ocean Spiral marine sphere.

The idea of ​​Shimizu, or at least this is what they tell us, involves taking the human to the bottom of the oceans in order not only to take advantage of the fact that under the seas we precisely find 70% of the Earth, but it could also be taken advantage of that we would have amounts'unlimited'of food and algae, water thanks to desalination plants, energy since under the seas there is a great power of unexplored energy, natural resources and even a great power to treat carbon dioxide.

To carry out this idea they tell us about a floating sphere of about 500 meters in diameter At the base of which a kind of spiral would be placed where electricity would be generated using thermal energy conversion techniques. This sphere would have a mesh-like structure so that the inhabitants of this city can enjoy a 360 degree panoramic view of the seabed.
