Water-Scrapers

With the planet's population increasing and the water levels rising, we can all agree that we are running out of room - just ask Kevin Costner in Waterworld. Moving to a lunar moon base might be too distant in our future, but with the Earth being mostly water, creating floating cities such as Sarly Adre Bin Sarkum's Water-Scraper in the oceans are a bit more practical.
The hO2+ scraper is an autonomous floating unit of livable, functional and self sustaining space which will function, in a collective manner, as a floating city.  It is self sufficient as it generates its own power through wave, wind, current, solar, bio etc. and it generates its own food through farming, aquaculture, hydroponics etc. It carries with its own small forest on top its back and supports places for users to live and works  in its depths.

This story reminds me of the 'World Turtle' that carries the Earth upon its back and floats along the seas.
