lahanias swim is a futuristic way to turn the ocean around.
A $25-million project by a team of MIT researchers and venture capitalists that aims to build a small, wearable device that could monitor the environment in a way that’s easier to understand than a smartphone.
The device is being developed with a $10-million investment by Google’s $100-million lab in Boston.
It will use an accelerometer and GPS chip to monitor the ocean’s movements and take snapshots.
Its goal is to build “a very accurate and sensitive sensor” that could be used for disaster relief, the team says.
The idea for the device comes from MIT professor of oceanography Michael Hall, who in 2011 was asked by Google to create a wearable computer that could communicate with a smartphone over Wi-Fi, but who at the time said he didn’t know how to make a smartphone that would work in the environment.
“I didn’t have a prototype, I just knew it had to be wearable,” Hall told TechCrunch.
He eventually came up with the idea for lahanas swim, which he calls a “futurist” device that uses sensors to monitor ocean currents and temperature.
The sensors in the lahania swim measure the currents, which are based on the tides.
As a result, the device’s sensors can measure the water temperature, wave height and current in real time, allowing it to “see” the world more accurately than smartphones or other data collection devices, Hall said.
The swim also collects and stores data on the ocean currents that are generated by the ocean itself.
The lahanus swim will be able to collect and transmit data on currents in real-time, allowing for more accurate and comprehensive data collection, said Chris Mathers, an associate professor of environmental engineering at MIT.
This means the device could be more accurate than an app on a smartphone or an app that can’t tell where a current is coming from, Matherst said.
“It’s really, really important to have a device that is able to be more specific than the apps we’ve been using to collect data,” he said.
That’s why the team plans to include GPS in the device.
GPS chips are extremely small, so the swim’s sensors would need to be relatively small to be able capture these data.
“We’re looking at the size of a smartphone,” Hall said of the swim.
“The size of the GPS chip will be a limitation.”
The team plans for the swim to be about the size, or even smaller, than an iPhone, Mater said.
It won’t be cheap.
The $10 million investment will cover the manufacturing costs and software development, according to Mather.
The team is aiming for a prototype by the end of the year.
The prototype will cost about $250.
A device like the lhana swim won’t replace a phone or other smart phone, but it could make it easier to keep track of things like power outages, the group said.
One way to track how much electricity you use is to use a meter.
A smartphone would use the power it receives to calculate how much power you have left, and then send the results to your battery company, which would then send it to the manufacturer, Hall added.
“With a phone, you’re not sending it back, you don’t know what it is,” Hall added, explaining that a smartphone can “read” the data it receives, but can’t actually store it.
“A smart phone would not know that the current is the same as the current.”
Hall’s group is working with a group of Chinese companies to develop a “smart” device called a “lhana,” which is also called a lahanian.
The group is developing a “digital lahano” that uses an accelerometers and GPS chips to track the ocean and is intended to be used as a mobile emergency locator.
The design for the digital lahao is similar to the lhanahas swim, but the device is a little larger, about the width of a laptop.
That device, which will be used to help people track and avoid hazards like oil spills, has already been developed, but is still in the early stages of development.
The digital lhanao will also be a “virtual lahoa,” which will work in conjunction with the lhaanas swim to allow people to “navigate the environment with greater accuracy and less effort,” according to the team.
The project will work to create the “smartest” swim possible.
A digital lhaana will not have a GPS chip and will only be able access data from a GPS signal from a smartphone, Matory said.
But Hall said the digital device will have a camera that will be capable of recording a digital snapshot of the environment, which is “very similar to a cellphone.”
“A cellphone camera is pretty good,” Hall noted.
“But you need to have an external camera
