Worst Oil Spill in History Inspires Ingenious Technology

Open_Sailing in the UK and France, V2_ in the Netherlands, randomwalks in South Korea, Amorphica in the US and Mexico, and others from all around the world are building a low-cost oil collecting robot, called Protei, that will sail upwind on its own to intercept oil moving downwind. The robot is being developed to address oil spills and the ocean gyre garbage patches. Watch the video on Protei at the group’s kickstarter page.
