Building a durable, wind-powered, shape-shifting sailing robot used to sense and clean the ocean.

It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Protei is working to improve ocean health by creating a durable, wind-powered, shape-shifting sailing robot used to sense and clean the ocean. Protei is optimized to pull a long payload to clean-up oil spills, collect plastic from the ocean, sense radioactivity, monitor fisheries, map coral reefs, and much more. A shape-shifting mono-hull provides multiple groundbreaking properties that make Protei an unprecedentedly robust, agile, and powerful propulsion system powered by renewable energies. In order for their technology to develop and propagate quickly and efficiently, they've developed Protei Open Hardware—a plug and play sailing robot fleet which can be Android-operated and remotely controlled via a simple web browser from a PC, laptop, or mobile device.
