The MARINTEK (the Norwegian Marine Technology Research Institute) is working with Norway's Salt Ship Design to create a boat that can cancel out the rolling motion of the ocean's waves.

The full size version is being developed by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea and uses a set of six azimuth thrusters for self contained swivelling propellers using GPS data to constantly reposition the ship.
