SMS From The Fishes

 A Kenyan student has created an exciting new electronic device that automates fishing by luring the fish with the sound of other fish feeding. Once the fish are trapped, an attached GPRS/GSM device conveniently sends an SMS to the fisherman informing him that his catch is ready. This innovation was showcased at the Conference on Dissemination of Research Results and Exhibition of Innovations at the Kenyatta International Conference Center on May 4th, 2009.

This innovation is indeed an extraordinary accomplishment and I can't stop wondering what will they think of next? But could this be the answer to our overfishing problems or making  it even worse? Just remember, with great power, comes great responsibility.
