Researchers at the University of Southampton are developing a new way to create electricity from wave power.
They have called it the Anaconda because of its shape - a long narrow rubber tube, closed at both ends. It is designed to be anchored just below the sea's surface, with one end facing the oncoming waves. It is made of rubber and has no joints or hinges, so making it less expensive to make and maintain.
It was easier to find a picture of an electric eel than an anaconda, and in some ways it seems a more appropriate name. Still, the picture above doesn't seem to generate any warm feelings inside me, not at all..
