I appreciate the concern many here have about polluting the oceans, but considering the absolutely vast quantities of waste both intentionally and unintentionally dumped into them already, the oceans aren't going to notice the addition of a few wide-mouthed jars with Arduinos in them.

So what's stopping you from getting started with your project? What's your question?

There are vast amounts of garbage spread out in our oceans.  But the Pacific Gyre is a myth.  I mean it is nothing like these pictures.

Go for it!  Start designing!  Let us know.

There's no dense spots where garbage is clumped up like some of those pictures show?
Did they fake those shots?

I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

The images are mostly propaganda.  Yes it is bad.  Millions of tons of garbage.  Nearly invisible small pieces.  When you use a net to filter out all the pieces there are grams per gallon of seawater on the surface.  But it looks nothing like those pictures out in the middle of the ocean.  When you swim in the worst part, the water appears blue and beautiful!  Other than the occasional truck tire.

I'm not, because as I said in my original post, "I'm just throwing this out there for anyone to work on if they chose to.  I'm nowhere near an ocean and have plenty of other projects to work on."
