Whale fans, and I know quite a few, will enjoy the whale portraits by photographer and conservationist Bryant Austin. Samples of his work can be found in a recent io9 article by Annalee Newitz.
"Bryant Austin is the only photographer in the world producing high-resolution, life-size photography of whales."
The entire collection can be found in Mr. Austin's recent art book, Beautiful Whale.
In past blog posts, we have seen robotic fish and robotic sea snakes. We can now add robotic jellyfish to the list.
Most folks feel a little uncomfortable around jellyfish. Would a robotic jellyfish that is over five feet in length fare any better?
In an article by Matthew Shaer for the Christian Science Monitor, we meet Cyro the robotic jellyfish. The article also contains a video, so you can see Cyro in action.
Back in December of 2012, I shared an article on Liquid Robotics' Wave Glider autonomous robot known as Papa Mau. Liquid Robotics is back in the news with the Wave Glider SV3, their latest autonomous sea-faring data center.
"At its heart, the SV3 is meant to carry a heavy duty load of sensors designed to serve everything from the oil and gas industry to fisheries to coast guards and the military."
Read all about the new Wave Glider SV3 in this article by Daniel Terdiman for C|Net.
The coworker that sent me the mermaid drawing that I posted in last week's article had a story for me this week. He was walking his dog one morning when he came across a lost mermaid that appears to have washed ashore in the recent storms.
Hopefully she will find her way back home.
Seems that once you make contact with merfolk, we are suddenly everywhere!
Best wishes and starfishes,
