Submission + - Raspberry Pi To Cross The Ocean In Autonomous Boat (gizmodo.com.au)

lukehopewell1 writes: The Raspberry Pi is a triumph in computing, and it's now set to become a triumph in robotics as one developer plans to build a model boat around it and sail it across the Atlantic Ocean, completely unmanned.

It's codenamed "FishPi" and will see a model boat sail across the Atlantic all by itself save for a camera, GPS module, compass and solar panels. It's only a proof of concept right now, but if this guy set it up on Kickstarter and offered a live stream of the crossing, I'd be opening my wallet.

Bringing computers into the home won't change either one, but may revitalize the corner saloon.
