Writing with Water

from The Future of Things (TFOT

Thursday, June 21, 2012 – Iddo Genuth

Researchers from the Aalto University in Finland have come up with a novel way of storing information on surfaces using only water. By exploiting the unique way a layer of air behaves on a water-repelling surface flooded with water, they were able to create a system which can store binary information.

The idea for this unique research came from the special properties of the lotus leaf. Lotus leaves are so water repellent that water simply roll off their surface, keeping them perfectly clean. A team of scientists and researchers  from the Aalto University in Finland, the University of Cambridge and the Nokia Research Center, came up with a new concept inspired by the Lotus leaves of writing and displaying information on surfaces using water. . . .

On June 1, 2012, the Explorer X team set off on its second investigation of a 197-foot-diameter (60 meters) unidentified structure that is 275 feet down on the floor of the Baltic Sea some 60 nautical miles from nearest land between Sweden and Finland. First discovered on June 19, 2011, on the last day of a treasure hunting expedition to find sunken wrecks, a second smaller anomaly was also found 600 feet away. A few more puzzling details were seen this time on BlueView and Multibeam sonar before the team decided it was safe to send two divers down for a closer look. Peter Lindberg now compares the larger object to a concrete structure with 90-degree lines, vertical surfaces and is sitting on a smaller structure so it “looks like a champagne cork.” . . .
