WaveRoller uses IoT to tame the power of the sea

April 13, 2018 / ZENOBIA HEGDE

There’s good news and bad news in our on-going conflict with the environment. Bad news first: the sea is reacting to climate change by taking more land. It already occupies two-thirds of the planet and now it’s eating our coastlines. The good news? The sea is effectively a giant battery, says freelance IoT writer, Nick Booth. There are multiple sources charging up with Brine Power – such as the sun, gravitational pull and the earth’s rotation. Its brutal kinetic energy has been largely beyond our powers of conversion, being too unpredictable and rough to play with – until, it is claimed, the arrival of a new IoT invention called WaveRoller.
