Topic: Oil Skimmer
Background: Oil skimmers do exactly what they say: skim oil off of the surface of water. BP isn't the only one in need of this service as their spill is not the first and will not be the last. Modern skimmers have several drawbacks, one of the most important being a need for calm waters.
Your skimmer may be any size, from personal, to world disaster, and any time period, from steam punk to super futuristic.
