In the video, we see that he has hacked ...

Silk-Leaf-by-Julian-Melchiorri_dezeen_03_644 Plants are those useful green things humans cultivate from seed for food, or chop down to provide materials like paper. Most importantly, we also need the oxygen they provide to survive. A new development led by an RCA graduate student has blossomed the first oxygen-producing "man-made biological" leaf, which could be used for future space travel or to fight climate change.
