Launch of Protei, oil spill cleaning open hardware sailing robot.


Dear fellows. We just launch yesterday Protei on Kickstarter. 
Please share the link to our Kickstarter on your facebook, or if you know people in 
- environmental justice
- sailing world
- open-source
- engineering

Protei is a fleet of Sailing Drones, developed primarily to collect Oil Spills under Open Hardware licensing. An oil spill drifts down the wind, Protei sails upwind to collect the oil. Everyone is welcome to join, contribute, modify, produce, distribute the design and share their findings.
You can watch the 3 minutes video under to understand the detail of how it works :

The technology is really exciting beyond the fact that it could help for ocean study and cleaning. 
Have a lovely TED2011!
