Capturing energy from ocean waves isn’t as straightforward as it might sound—especially as most existing technologies rely on a single axis  that requires waves to be moving in one direction to generate enough power. However,  Sam Etherington recently invented a device that is able harness the ocean’s energy regardless of which way the water is moving. His tubular design uses a long chain of loosely linked enclosed pistons that generate energy as the chain flexes in the peaks and troughs of each wave.
