New tech that could help with deep underwater search for missing plane

(CNN) – The clock is ticking on the signals from the flight-data and cockpit-voice recorders, known as "black boxes," of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. The batteries for the recorders last about 30 days.

Oceanographer Ian MacDonald, a professor at Florida State University, walks us through the new technology available to investigators.
