The Wave Power Group at the University of Edinburgh has produced a site primarily depicting its research into alternative power sources. Visitors will find a short history of the group, formed in 1974 after Steven Slater invented equipment to convert ocean wave energy into electricity. This is followed by descriptions of the group's recent efforts to develop similar technologies, including the curved wave tank and the 3D wave tank. The site is not limited to projects dealing with energy, however. It also discusses the potential development of a rain making machine and an instrument to detonate land minds without direct human involvement. Finally, visitors can view clips from the Power of Change video, which illustrate the works of the group. Engineers and students interested in alternative power research and other unique answers to global challenges will find this site extremely valuable.
