Recommended Viewing : James Gosling on Liquid Robotics and Their Wave Gliders

Over many years, I have encountered attempts to use Java in low latency as well as near real-time environments.  James Gosling has been at the center of many of these efforts. Beyond his amazing work as the principle creator of Java he is now creating some amazing robots with remarkable characteristics. He has been working at Liquid Robotics and has been hard at work on some incredibly interesting software that are incorporated into the Wave Gliders.  In this first video he discusses the work at Liquid Robotics :

I attended this next talk where he discussed his work – it is extremely interesting :
