Boeing and Liquid Robotics today announced a partnership to make water-borne robots that can handle a variety of surveillance jobs, ranging from hunts for submarines to the detection of drug traffickers.
Silicon Valley’s Liquid Robotics is the manufacturer of the Wave Glider SV3, a $300,000 self-powered, seafaring data center that offers customers — until now, mostly researchers and marine industry companies — tools for investigating the open seas for months at a time. SV3s have a hybrid propulsion system that can drive the robot with either solar or wave power. Boeing is the world’s second-largest defense contractor.

Bitcoin, the best known form of virtual currency, faces numerous obstacles to widespread acceptance and adoption, but a new group called Coin Center has added a voice of support.
The organization is led by Jerry Brito, a law professor and a former research fellow at George Mason’s Mercatus Center. In an announcement made Thursday, Brito said Coin Center is a “new non-profit research and advocacy center focused on the public policy issues facing cryptocurrency technologies.” Bitcoin was the first and still the best known virtual currency or crytocurrency, which means that cryptography is used for its transactions and its creation.
