Hoverglide – World’s 1st “floating” Backpack
Derivative of research into power producing backpack frames for the military (which found that energy extraction screws up gait, making it harder to carry), but if instead use gait cancellation motions, allows a net increase in carrying capacity for the same metabolic cost.

Technische Universität Wien : Mehr Platz für die Sonne
Called Heliofloat, it sounds like a variation of a classical PSP platform, using semi-flexible barrel/cylinder side walls to absorb some wave motion. Using a marine concrete PSP sounds more durable, though at greater weight/cost?

China ready to construct floating nuclear power plant|Politics|News|
Oh ho, stuffing nuke barges into the artificial island harbor lagoons in the south china sea? Yeah, that'll pretty much cement (no pun intended) their land claims since no sane person would want to do an island assault to take back the islands.

Is Google building a hulking floating data center in SF Bay? | Internet & Media - CNET News
Hrm, so the convert-a-tanker floating datacenter guys disappeared, but Google is building a barge datacenter. Note that barge may be towable offshore, but it isn't something I would call an offshore structure (need a semisub or TLP style structure to be safe from storms)

NASA - OMEGA Project
Interesting idea of feeding effluent/wastewater/sewage into ocean floating clear tubes to make algae and clean the water. End run around the issues of fertilizer/nutrient feeds for algae production, algae growth medium location, facility structure cost and location, and nicely deals with the wastewater output of sewage treatment facilities.

Firms plan to build floating wind farm off Fukushima coast ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion
"experimental" means it will be a political mess. The only gain they have is probably locating it just off the coast from the reactor sites. Since there will few locals and fishermen to complain, and convenient transmission network access by colocating the power cable landing station with the reactor sites.

Apparently, these guys were already working on using microbubbles to improves algae density in production. Now, they have retasked the same tech to help with floatation/separation/harvesting to ease gathering and drying, which is somewhat energy intensive normally. Naturally this assumes algae for biofuel where you are using the biomass directly (thus killing the algae), rather than using algae types the excrete oils that can be skimmed (and keep the algae alive).

Interesting spar buoy VAWT design. The bizarre concept of using an axial pump to fill the VAWT lower ring torus with water as a kind of kinetic energy storage for wind variability ride through, but which self drains the torus if the spin speed is too low, is kinda clever, but the structural weight to accomplish that is non-trivial. But won't this get hooked up on the Gorlov turbine patent?
