Massive Rubber Snake Makes Electricity
Gizmodo points us to a submersible rubber snake that captures wave energy in the ocean. While the British scientists are testing scaled versions of the aptly-named “Anaconda”, the final version will be up to 23 feet wide and 650 feet long, capable of generating enough power for 1,000 homes. Why not stick with current wave generators? This design is less complicated, has less moving parts and isn’t nearly as susceptible to salt-water corrosion.
