Indian invents cheap SMS tsunami alert system

A 27 year old Indian claims that he has invented a very efficient SMS tsunami warning system. ”The system, projected to give warning in the case of turbulence in <> could give alert signals at least two hours before tsunami struck the coast”, the young inventor said. A demonstration of the device was made before engineers and students of Bharatiyar Engineering College, Karaikal. The young man approached Pondicherry government to evaluate the gadget. "My gadget is a very simple one. It contains two floats fitted with electronic devices. To use the device, we need a 'protected' water body. It should be free from external disturbances. A sensor in the float would activate a controller which would send alert SMS messages to authorities concerned", the young man said.
