Juan Enriquez talks about Homo evolutis. This is a TED video.

ARR Inc., is offering its Suparator (R) technology for separating an upper oil phase from water by means of a cleverly designed staged weir system. According to the product literature, the passive device collects, concentrates, and separates oil from flowing water. This widget uses Bernoulli effects to draw water from collection zones and top the upper phase over a final weir for isolation.

Admittedly, I have not kept up with the progress of wier technology, but to a non-engineer like myself, this seems pretty clever.
