This Sci Show video, produced by Wren and hosted by Michael Aranda, showcases five relatively low-profile algae applications. While these uses are not commonly promoted, they may allow algae to play an increasingly larger and more important role in our daily lives in the not-too-distant future.
These applications are:
- Self-cleaning surfaces
- Palm oil substitute
- Night-vision goggle lenses
- Photosynthetic skin grafts
