A couple of weeks ago, Electrolux revealed their plans for creating vacuum cleaners from resin in the various gyres. A challenging project no doubt, but probably doable. Now comes the most over-the-top-pie-in-the-sky-what-were-they-smoking-and-not-sharing proposal yet: take all the plastic and make a floating island with it.
Kinda neat how that the wildlife even likes the island - notice the osprey circling above it.
But this would be far more than just an island; it would be home for living creatures, like people.
Looks like something out of SimCity.
This can't be serious. The first tropical storm through the area would toss this around like the plastic bags it would be made from.
