Young scientists from Stevens Insitute develop bomb-searching device called Percious
HOBOKEN - A team of students from Stevens Institute have come up with a way to locate bombs deep underwater.
A floating vehicle called Percious is equipped with cameras that can spot explosives 40 feet below.
It has cameras on board, and is remotely controlled by operators who can watch from a safe place while the device searches.
"There's a lot of places, whether it's in harbors or deeper water, where there's unexploded ordinances on the sea floor," says Joseph Huyett. "And it poses a hazard to everybody from recreational divers to fishermen."
