Dutch Scientists Build World's Biggest Wave Generator

Dutch scientists of the University of Delft have created the world's biggest human-made wave generator. The Delta Flume can send waves 5 meters (16.4 feet) high, crashing down a 300-meter (984 feet) long channel.

The monster machine wasn't designed to help surfers catch bigger waves, but to enhance safety against floods in the Netherlands, where half of the country's population lives below sea level on reclaimed land.
