    Default RE: Unmanned Sailboat . . . Track with GPS

    This may be of mild interest to some folks . . . a fellow in Belfast has built and released two unmanned four foot sailboats equipped with GPS transmitters that you can track as they attempt to cross the Atlantic to France . . . so far they appear to be going the wrong way.

    More info on the boats:

    Default Thanks

    That's really interesting. If I were a classroom teacher, I'd have fun putting this in my curriculum.
