As far as I know, these are still just ideas, as opposed to the guy in the video who actually did it.

This could be the answer to that floating island of garbage in the Pacific.
Developers have revealed plans to create a habitable island from 44,000 tonnes of waste that is currently floating in the Pacific Ocean.
WHIM architecture is working on the design of a prototype for Recycled island.
First impression prototype Recycled island
The prototype will exist of one single family home and surroundings to make it self-sufficient. With the prototype we want to show and test the realization of Recycled island. The prototype is a small version of Recycled island, but has similar sustainable and self sufficient characteristics as the overall concept.
The creation of the prototype will illustrate:
1: The plastic pollution worldwide.
2: The potential of plastic recycling.
3. Living with the rising sea level.
4. Sustainable and self sufficient housing.
The realization of the prototype still depends on finding the correct funding and collaborations.

That is super cool, but somehow I don't see it as sea worthy. He claims it survived a few hurricanes but the open ocean and tidal zones are another deal all together. I just cannot see it surviving those extremes. Especially if it bounced around on a reef or something......
Have nothing at all that is valuable. If you have nothing they want, there will be nothing to take. You could also rig the entire outer perimeter with various booby traps.
