Ship bases inspired by shark cells that detect movement to identify dangerous water current movements.

Huricane detector

These shark-savvy semi finalists noted an interesting fact about the lateral lines of sharks; canals filled with fluid and tiny hair cells that can sense vibrations and movements. As the sharks can detect frequencies as low as 25 Hertz, this team from India are looking to redesign the base of ships so as to detect vibrations and dangerous water current movements.
