2018 AMRO - The Atlantic Floater

Information technology is increasingly becoming a power factor in a globally networked world. Algorythms control the global information networks. We secure information about autonomous networks and offer the possibility of independent information transmission. We do not want to stand in competition with the global information players of the capital. That's why we reduce the bandwidth of our information transfers to a few hertz. Independence has the price of information reduction and reduction does not mean total loss of control. is an autonomous information network based on WSPR and JP65 technology. The radio technology of John Taylor offers enormous ranges through small bandwidths. The transmission of information is thereby reduced to status messages. The aim of the project is to create a dedicated minimalist network in the freely available CB radio band.

Water and information: Information plays an important role in evolution. It is unclear if information was available before evolution or evolution evolved the information. The second important factor in evolution was and is the water. Water enabled life and thus information storage via the DNS.

At the moment, network nodes are operating on ships in Venice, Hamburg, Amsterdam and Linz.

2018 - The Atlantic Floater

The project idea of self-sufficient island of 2007 is to be implemented in 2018 in the Atlantic Ocean. In the meantime, we have gained enough practical experience on self-sufficient systems on boats to suspend a buoy in the ocean. As a starting point, we have chosen the Canary Islands. Trade winds and stable weather conditions in December are to transport the buoy in 12 weeks across the Atlantic. Thereafter, the buoy is to pass the Caribbean island world and drift in the Sargasso Sea. The Sargasso Sea is also the notorious Bermuda Triangle that closes the content circle to the Eelhotel of the Infolabs.

The technic: 4 pieces of car tires are foamed, they are the float and carry an additional payload of 3 kg. A tire is mounted 1.5 meters lower and serves as collision protection for ships and the buoy. At the lower end of the pole is still a 10m chain mounted which serves to stabilize the buoy.
At the upper end of the pole, which protrudes 1.5 meters out of the water, a triangular device box is mounted. This equipment box has a height of 1m and a triangular area of 10cm and is equipped with solar cells on all three sides.

The device box contains: 1 Rasperry Pi with the following software and hardware: A GPS mouse. Software for Lithium Ion charge controllers and voltage monitoring. As well as a Wsspr transmission software that generates the transmission signal on a pin of the PI. This is amplified with two BS170 transistors. A 4 meter long antenna will transmit this signal on the 40 meter band at 7040 khz. The receipts and position of the floater can be found on

This technique has already been tested on the following ships:
