Leave it to MIT for a better answer
Oil cleaning robot army
This strange looking contraption is what the oil industry should have been working on for the last twenty years or so. It's a robotic oil skimmer that can work for months by itself cleaning up oil spills. Seems we can spend billions of dollars on drones and robots to kill people why not something for the benefit of man. But silly me I know once the military gets it's hands on this they'll try to figure out how to turn it into a weapon.
I think I mention this once before, that I wouldn't be too sad if my profession was turned over to robots.
Keep your drums upright or let a robot right it for you.
