A researcher at Kobe University has invented an autonomous Wave Glider robot that looks for water pressure and magnetic field changes on the ocean floor that indicate a tsunami has formed. Made by Liquid Robotics, the robot harnesses wave and solar power to function at sea for up to a year without fuel. The robot can warn a tsunami center within three to four minutes of detecting a tsunami—enough time for people to seek higher ground. Bravo.
