We are always amazed seeing these ideas that seem so new, like wave and tidal power, but yet were proposed years ago by inventors and scientists. This 1934 system, with its fixed concrete foundations and overhead cables connecting it to the generator on land, is perhaps less practical than modern systems. However imagine a coastline with this line of giant dippy ducks guarding us and providing power. See Tim's recent update for more modern systems here. from ::Modern Mechanix
