Giant Rubber Snakes Are the Future

Submitted by: eugenius 8 years ago in Science

The rippling ""Anaconda"" produces electricity as it is squeezed by passing waves. Go science!

Wave energy is extremely promising, in my opinion. But it will take a huge investment of resources to produce the number of things like this we`d need.

"harkannin, did you just say they should harness the power of "wheels" and photosynthesis? Do you know what the prefix photo means?"

I think he was talking about two separate ideas. Investigating both for future sources of energy. At least I hope so.

Anyway, I can see it now. "Giant ocean snake monsters attack sailboat" on the cover of every tabloid.

<< that would work pretty well, until a shark or something comes up to it and is just like "OM NOM NOM NOM"
but also, it would take up a lot of room, would it not?

Old idea, but a nice new concept.

But then you get all these people shooting `snakes` in the water... It`s still pretty cool, though. New power sources are awesome. They`d be more awesome if they involved barbeque sauce, though.

I don`t think they count since they are natural and we don`t use energy to make the waves ourselves, if we put the snake things into the seas/oceans, DeeCache

Wait is this %100 efficient or does the energy it takes to move the waves count?

does the narrator in these vids make it an effort to sound retarded?

also, everything cool and innovative you hear about in science magazines is 10-20 years in the future, and never of much practical use as far as costs go. which is why i get so pissed when i watch these vids.

Can you imagine swimming around and bumping into that thing? And how many times is it going to be bitten by unknowing fish or whathaveyou?
All in all, a neat idea.

harkannin, did you just say they should harness the power of "wheels" and photosynthesis? Do you know what the prefix photo means? its light, it means to get energy from light? come on! i dont even know wtf wheels means, but it is so far from something a sentient organsism should say.

what the drat

It`s about time they figured out how to harness the power of waves, next it should be wheels and photosynthesis
