If we’re going to clean up to ocean, we’re going to need some robotic help.
These floating trash suckers might just do the trick.
The ocean is a vast place. And while we humans have managed to fill a lot of that vastness with garbage, it’s still large enough that cleaning it up would take an incalculable amount of man hours. If only we had some sort of mechanical slave to do our work for us.
That’s the idea behind the Marine Drone, a concept project from Elie.Ahovi industrial design. Following in the footsteps of other robots built to scour the sea tirelessly (like these exploration robots powered by waves and this fleet of drones with absorbent tails to clean up oil spills), the Marine Drone is designed to swim around and do something about all the plastic filling our waters.
