OSP Robot Contains Oil Spill

Oil spills are major environmental disasters, and key to containing its deadly effects would be to clean up the spill as soon as possible. This Herculean effort would work even better with the help of robots that do not fatigue and tire like humans do. Known as the OSP, designer Ji-hoon Kim claims that this concept robot witll work autonomously together by surrounding an oil spill with an inflatable barrier. Once the whole spill is contained, clean-up crews can get straight to work, sucking all those crude out. This is one invention I would like to see materialize in my lifetime.
