Google Files Patent For Wave Powered Floating Server
Ha! You thought the ‘wave’ and ‘floating’ were tech speak. Wrong! Although the patent was filed back in February of this year, it was just recently spotted by a Slashdotter. So what is it? A data center that’s powered and cooled by the ‘motion of the ocean’ and resides 7 miles from the coast. In some case, wind turbines could be added for extra energy. Another company, IDS, plans to launch a similar project, although there idea calls for using ‘discarded cargo ships’.
