    Cool concept pic.
    It looks like needs a lot of work that I can see, and I'm no engineer. Isn't France using something like this already?

    I thought this was beyond concept and being worked on placement?

    The blades turn slow so any thought of possible harm is minimized.

    The placement from what I understand is in a specific channel that has been measured for consistant current flow.

    They already have several in place.

    I would worry about the duty cycle. The sea is a harsh place, and having moving parts in saltwater sounds very harsh indeed, though I like the way they lift up for maintenance.
    Don't anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.
