Google Maps Goes Captain Nemo with Underwater Views

Google Maps Goes Captain Nemo with Underwater Views
Google has been significantly expanding its Maps offerings for a long time. When the service first started one of the only things you could do was get directions to places you wanted to go. Over time, Google expanded offerings with Street View showing you exactly what the roads in the area you were looking at were like.

Artist Explores the Sea Without Leaving Her Wheelchair
Physically-challenged people don’t need to miss out on all of life’s activities. With a little out-of-the-box thinking and ingenuity, anything is possible. Take Sue Austin for instance. She’s an artist in the UK and she is able to see the wonders of the ocean without ever leaving her wheelchair.

LEGO Underwater Robot: Insert Brick and Sink Joke Here

LEGO Underwater Robot: Insert Brick and Sink Joke Here
I was very impressed by the LEGO Omniboat, but apparently you can take LEGO vehicles even deeper. An engineering student made this remote controlled underwater robot for a school project. I expect bricks to sink, but I was surprised to see batteries and circuits fare well underwater.

First Pictures from Baltic “Millennium Falcon” Expedition Surface
Back in February, I talked a bit about the discovery made on the bottom of Baltic Sea that looked like the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. The find was made by a deep-sea salvaging operation presumably looking for shipwrecks that can be salvaged.

Robotic Octopus Creeps into Our Lives

Robotic Octopus Creeps into Our Lives
The octopus is capable of some incredible movements because they have large brains, fine motor control, and almost no bones to hinder them. So it makes sense that researchers would want a robo-octopus to study. That’s what the Octopus Project is about – a bunch of oversized kids playing in the bathtub with their new toy.

Of all the things the United States has done in space, the Apollo 11 mission is the most famous and impressive to many. Apollo 11 was the mission that put Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong on the moon in 1969.

Is the Millennium Falcon on the Bottom of the Baltic Sea?
The picture you see here may seem familiar to you, I know it made its rounds a while back when a company called Ocean Explorer ran across what appears to be the Millennium Falcon lying on the bottom of the Baltic Sea.

Hamster-Powered Submarine Doesn’t Fire Tiny Torpedoes (But it Should)

Hamster-Powered Submarine Doesn’t Fire Tiny Torpedoes (But it Should)
I have to think all the way back to 2007’s hamster-powered paper shredder to the last time I wrote about a gadget which could run on rodent power. But much like the Flintstones, I’ve always wanted more technology to operate on animal power.

Necker Nymph: Rent Your Own Underwater Sea Plane from Sir Richard Branson

Triton 36,000 Submarine Gets Stronger Under Pressure

Triton 36,000 Submarine Gets Stronger Under Pressure
I like to swim and I have always though SCUBA diving would be cool as long as it was in water shallow enough that sharks couldn’t sneak up on me. I’m not for diving down to the kind of depths in a submarine where the pressure is so great you are one leaky valve from getting a testicle shot off by a billion psi of ice cold ocean water squirting through a crack.

Starship Enterprise Submarine: Its Dive-Year Mission

Starship Enterprise Submarine: Its Dive-Year Mission
It’s funny, I always thought when they named it the Starship Enterprise, they were talking about the type of ship that could fly through outer space. But apparently, the ship part was referring to a water-bound vessel.

Hydrobob: Sea-Segway

Hydrobob: Sea-Segway
Andrew Sneath has invented a vehicle that allows people who know nothing about diving or swimming to safely experience the joys of being underwater, albeit in a controlled environment and with a slight dent to one’s dignity.

Sanyo Waterproof Camcorder Can Record Full HD Underwater
With summer here, each time we go to the lake or the pool I worry that my camera and camcorder will get wet and ruined. It’s not just the water at the pool or lake I worry about, it’s the kids spilling their drinks on the camera too.
