'Green' robot self-propels through sea

A seagoing glider that uses heat energy from the ocean to propel itself is the first "green" robot to explore the undersea environment, U.S. researchers say.
"We are tapping a virtually unlimited energy source for propulsion," Fratantoni said.

That's pretty cool, one of the first green robot. They say it is working since december. It seems to get its energy from temperature differences.
