Did a Solar-Powered Autonomous Boat Just Cross the Pacific Ocean? | Make:

Damon built a robotic boat. Not just any robotic boat. This one is sailing across the world's oceans. And it's just simple enough to work.
Wonderful, inspiring, fun! Wish I had thought of it. :)

Probably complicated to deal with the connectivity, there are no mobile antenna in the middle of ocean. It can be probably lot cheaper without the daily position report

@Paul I would estimate it costs 25 GBP per month to operate given what I've read about the craft and about Iridium's services. I don't think that's expensive at all, given that just the batteries probably cost 300 GBP.
