Yesterday’s project was about the sea. Today’s project is likewise setting sail – this time on an autonomous adventure to explore the world’s water. Oceans, lakes, rivers and everything that flows in between hold mysteries that still elude us. Help us understand our world from the water (and there’s a lot of water to cover) by backing this project before October 12.
We’re asking for your help to produce and test the ROBOTBOAT MARK VI. Each robotboat is fully autonomous, needs no fuel, and will bring to bear myriad sensors at remote points on the surface of oceans, lakes, and rivers. Think of it as a satellite for the seas.
