Michael Burton and Michiko Nitta's Algaculture Symbiosis Suit has a series of tubes, which are placed in front of the mouth, which capture carbon dioxide and feed it to suit-embedded algae's ever-growing population, Discovery News reported.

The wearer just needs to sit by a window or go outside to help algae grow.

The suit made its debut, last year, outside the Victoria and Albert Museum.
