OCEAN WATCHERS / ocean garbage collection


Currently there are many garbage mostly thrown by human being in the ocean. These rubbish not only contaminate seawater, but also threat marine creatures. For solving the problem, we designed a ocean garbage accumulator that is named OCEAN WATCHERS used to collect ocean garbage by vortex principle. As you can see, many garbage float on the ocean and what ocean watchers do make use of the spiral wings immersed in ocean to create eddy around.Thus, adjacent garbage will be involved in garbage inlet to achieve the clean goal. Also,GPS equipment is installed in the ocean watcher to easily locate.
