Underwater turbines are nothing new. There have been tidal turbines, wave turbines, and even turbines that are shaped to look like a fish tail. But a new underwater rubber device shaped like a sea snake and called the Anaconda is about to be stuck to the ocean floor to generate enough power for 1,000 homes.Anaconda Hydro Turbine

Underwater turbines are nothing new. There have been tidal turbines, wave turbines, and even turbines that are shaped to look like a fish tail. But a new underwater rubber device shaped like a sea snake is about to be stuck to the ocean floor to generate enough power for 1,000 homes. The ‘Anaconda‘ is a whopping 200 metres long, and because of its non-intrusive design, scientists think that they could set up around 50 of these and generate power without disturbing underwater ecosystems (unlike some turbines). Even though the first Anaconda has been built and tested, the hopeful launch date of the first one is around 2014. But 5 years isn’t long to wait for a power-pumping sea snake.
