Google Android handset
Google recently asked several members of its Chrome team to go on a search under the sea, not for the lost city of Atlantis, but for things like currency conversions and weather forecasts.
Google Australia engineers Noel Gordon and Alice Boxhall travelled to the Great Barrier Reef, armed with notebooks and their Android-powered Sony Ericsson Experia smartphone, to see if they could get search terms requested by voice working underwater.
The experiment worked by mounting the handset on a retort stand (above).
