An Israeli company plans to distribute free tsunami detectors to poor Asian countries. The portable, $170-per-unit system developed by Israeli inventor Meir Gitelis, detects seismic activity and wave motion and sends warnings to affected areas. Gitelis’ company, Avtipus Patents and Inventions Ltd., believes such devices could have saved many of the victims of last week’s earthquake and tsunami in the Indian Ocean.
