Tech Startup SeaBubbles Debuts Self-Driving, Flying Water Taxis

Tech Startup SeaBubbles Debuts Self-Driving, Flying Water Taxis | Nereides Diary | Scoop.it
We're all living in the not-too-distant future. No question. After all, we've got working jetpacks (well, some of us do). We've got AI home assistants, computer watches, and now, the pinnacle of futuristic technology, flying boat cars.

French startup Seabubbles has debuted a new prototype air taxi that literally hovers above the water in order to provide speedy journeys for passengers in what the company hopes will one day become the aquatic equivalent to Uber. This same technology was used in 2005 to break the water speed record, and now, it's hoped that these speedy hovercars will become a common site on rivers and canals around the world.

Saildrone to provide valuable ocean data

Saildrone to provide valuable ocean data | Nereides Diary | Scoop.it
Ocean research that seeks to monitor what is happening in the ocean environment—counting fish, assessing food resources, monitoring endangered species included—provides vitally important answers.

A company called Saildrone is stepping up to the challenge. Their vessel, also bearing the company name, is an unoccupied autonomous sailing craft with instruments for collecting data from the environment.

"A fully equipped Saildrone carries a powerhouse of oceanographic and atmospheric sensors, with an ability to get to any part of the world's oceans and perform adaptive sampling," said the company site.

Saildrones can be remotely controlled via a satellite connection from anywhere in the world, said New Atlas. The company on its site explained that data is transmitted back to shore via satellite and delivered to users through an API.

The crafts sail on wind power. They use solar for the computers on board. They can be at sea for up to 12 months at a time, tasked to assist in informative missions, from stock assessments, to uploading data from subsurface sensors, to responding to marine emergencies.
