It will be so interesting to watch the progress on this. The ocean waves are relentless 24/7. But sound engineering can over come this and it looks good in these pictures.

What if the wind direction is 180 degrees out from the current direction? Will it bend it out of its horse shoe shape? and release the collected plastic.
