MIT Uses Nano To Build Oil Spill-Cleaning Robots

by Editor1 last modified August 30, 2010 - 12:09

Researchers at MIT have applied nanotechnology to the science of cleaning up oil spills. The system, dubbed Seaswarm, is a fleet of prototyped robotic skimming vehicles that use nanotechnology to autonomously navigate the ocean surface to collect surface oil and process it on site.
