The Flying Carrot

That's the name of what is the most technologically advanced row boat ever built.

"For what purpose?" you might ask.

Last January, Oliver Hicks, a Brit, set off solo from Tasmania on his 18,000 mile (29,000 km) journey around the world. If completed (Oliver is now in New Zealand!), this will be a world first and take between 18 and 22 months to complete.

Hicks is hyperconnected via email, Picasa, YouTube, Friend Connect and Blogger, Google Analytics, and Google Moderator, the latter to field questions from the many hundreds of people following his adventure. This is all done through his laptop, two PDA's, and three satellite phones, powered by a wind generator, solar panels and a fuel cell.

Row, row, row your boat...
