This Ship Creates Its Own Mini Waves Inside To Counter The Ocean (Video)

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.
To do that, they will use a U-Shaped water tank lining its hull, and it is only partly filled with water. By controlling the amount of air pumped into either side of the tank, it creates a gentle inner wave which can be used to counteract the motions of a rolling sea. Really quite genius.
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.
