Making underwater wireless communication possible

Radio waves tend to be unreachable through water so most ocean-based sensors use acoustic waves instead, which link sensors into underwater acoustic sensor networks (UWASN). A team designed a low-power IPv4/IPv6-compatible networking protocol that completely bypasses all the previous problems of underwater wireless communication. This is a huge deal because we’re slowly going to be able to have a wireless connection wherever we are soon. http://mobile.slashdot.org/story/13/10/15/0310249/unifying-undersea-wireless-communication-using-tcpip
