Liquid Robotics is an American ocean data services provider. On its own it looks impressive, especially given that they are the people developing the Wave Glider, an autonomous, environmentally powered ocean-going platform for gathering and remotely transmitting information about the surface of the ocean.
They gather info such as water temperature, and the atmospheric conditions above live wind speed.
If that wasn’t impressive enough, their Chief Software Architect is none other than Java-father James Gosling.
