    Military and research operations today use unmanned vehicles on quite a large scale, to remotely visit places inaccessible and at times, unsafe to human beings. An Ohio-based company, Zyvex Technologies recently unveiled a nano-technology-packed unmanned water craft called the Piranha. The vessel is 75% lighter, 40% stronger, and 400% more fuel efficient than similarly-sized aluminium boat and uses a carbon-fibre body and nanotechnology that generates all the energy required, making it efficient and giving it a great performance level. The Piranha can travel up to 2,800 nautical miles before it finally begins to pant for more fuel!

    Great for oceanographic surveys and an added aide to the coast guard, this vessel uses all that’s green to travel far and wide, without the need to fuel up time and again.
