Text Haberlandt is a vending machine food crops. At the same time biorector for growing a superfood -Arthospira platensis microalgae-and automated avant-cuisine machine. An array cyborg. Mechatronic ecosystem where life and technological systems coexist. A sharp but open system with inputs and outputs typical of an entity that depends ona chemical-energy exchange for their persistence. The machine produces algae as the ultimate goal but needs to be recharged with a minimum contribution of nutrients, being able to reduce this cycle of exchange of seaweed to human consumption (output) and human urine of rejection (input).
