The Wave Glider by Liquid Robotics, USA, was honoured by The Economist as the winner in the inaugural World Ocean Innovation Challenge. The results were announced at The Economist’s World Ocean Summit Gala event, sponsored by National Geographic and Blancpain. Roger Hine, co-founder, CTO and inventor of the Wave Glider, accepted the award on behalf of Liquid Robotics.

Selected by judges composed of international luminaries in the ocean, investment and governmental sectors, the Wave Glider was chosen from over 60 global entrants for its pioneering technology that “contributes most to the ‘blue economy,’ while presenting an environmentally sustainable and commercially viable solution”.

Gary Gysin, president and CEO of Liquid Robotics, expressed that this recognition underscores the importance and unlimited potential robotics has to offer to all economies, including the blue economy.
