DailyDirt: Robots Of The Sea

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Robots can come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, but some of the more interesting designs mimic some animals in the ocean. Machines that can operate underwater have some obvious military applications, but studying biomimicry can also lead to discoveries in biology and deep sea ecosystems. Here are just a few projects looking at some varieties of sea-faring robots. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    "The US Navy has funded a Robojelly project to make a soft robot that copies some of the characteristics of the moon jellyfish."

    I can't wait until they make them out of C-4!
