    Coping mechanisms of the copepod. A zooplankton specimen from Grand Canal Dock, Dublin. 60% of their mass are lipids, which is the oil sac visibly vacillating through their transparent bodies. These are the creatures that gave us petroleum. http://news.sciencemag.org/plants-animals/2011/06/tiny-marine-crustaceans-construct-wax-weight-belts-stay-deep This video is a result of Hack the Oceans - the Open Bouy project with Sebastian Muellauer and Hacklab, Dublin, 2013. http://openbuoy.net/ https://vimeo.com/66907275 Open Buoy is a modular, open source vessel which serves as a freely accessible, experimental platform for Scientists and Artists to host their technology to monitor and sense water systems, on bayous, rivers, lakes or the ocean. The vessel is an open hardware design, built low cost, using hacked consumer electronics to replace otherwise expensive research instruments. It is collaboratively developed and aims to implement the users eventual research interests, for example coastal documentation, water quality analysis, or acoustic recording, to name a few. By developing it incrementally and reacting to site specific requirements, the buoy shall grow naturally and help to learn and discover different topics and potential applications of such a floating platform in particular areas. Sincere thanks to Cliona Harmey for the lend of her microscope.
