    I ran across a youtube video by a guy named “themonrovian” and unfortunately I have no idea who he is, but his idea seemed exceptional to me for a lot of reasons. Here is the video:




    Now what’s really neat about his concept is that the “legs” of the platform could also have wave power generators built around them or in tandem with the flotation buoys. In this way, any wave action or bobbing would help generate power.


    His design also is highly scalable, I can easily envision very large size platform’s with an inhabitable center tower spire in their centers and smaller buildings, facilities and other community structures all around.


    If one forgoes the rectangular design, an oval or a circle may prove far more efficient and pleasing to the eye.

    This is a truly cool concept.

    Have you looked into the stresses on the diagonal legs as a wave passes under the multi-ton platform they are holding up? I believe anything subject to wave forces will eventually fail, and i would not want the lift-sink forces of the bobbing wave generator moving my living space around anyhow.
