Manta

A team from The National University of Singapore have created self-sustaining, fully automated "smart" ocean vacuum robots. This group of floating robots collect microplastics via manta-ray inspired filtering mechanisms, and rely on satellite communication for positioning, cross-communication and autonomous movement. They depend on seawater-powered batteries to help make microplastics a thing of the past.
