One person’s head-mounted torture device may be another person’s idea of food. Case in point: the Algaculture Symbiosis Suit.

No, the above photo is not a movie still from the next installment of the “Saw” franchise. It’s a symbiosis suit, designed by artists Michael Burton and Michiko Nitta (known as Burton Nitta), that grows food while wearers go about their daily business. A series of tubes, placed in front of the mouth, capture carbon dioxide and feed it to a constantly-growing population of suit-embedded algae. But algae needs sunlight to grow, right? Easy, the wearer just needs to sit by a window or go outside.

I think I'll wait for the Armani Algaculture Symbiosis Suit to come out.
