Zac Lochhead and Zach Preston from Team Sentinel and Imagine Cup alumni Nicole Lin join Vaughn Davis to talk about their new invention, and making it to the semi-finals of the Microsoft Imagine Cup.

The team’s new device talks to the internet, and alerts the user of their specially designed app as to how much water is in their tank.

Some people say it's the Olympics of technology.

Using the power of sonar or ultrasound, the device allows for an accurate reading without the chance of contamination.

The Sentinel team is comprised of three students from the University of Canterbury and the University of Auckland.

Their rainwater management system hopes to encourage people to practice more sustainable water habits.
