Cesar is a young person who believes that everyone can have a role in changing the world, something which he tries to do himself through technological innovation. He develops technologies to explore and protect the ocean, focusing on shape-shifting sailing robots. The shape shifting hull makes the boat extremely maneuverable and able to make very efficient use of the wind. The boats can potentially be used for cleaning the ocean (the technology was originally inspired by experience with the BP oil spill) or for data collection through modular sensors. The project is open-source, allowing a wide range of people to contribute to its development, hopefully enabling the rapid development of this environmentally beneficial technology.
On the day we shot he was working on building prototypes which can be purchased online through Protei.
