  • In robot news..........

    I don't know how many people caught the news about the robotic fish that made the rounds to most of the major tech sites last week or so, but to catch you up:

    Robotic Carp Unleashed Into the Sea to Sniff Out Pollution

    The small intricate movements of the fish is really amazing, and it looks almost like someone just caught a fish and went crazy with a Bedazzalier machine you see on late night TV ads.


    Just posted on Gizmodo is a video showing a bunch of designs by Shigeo Hirose, and it just blew my mind. The most interesting to me is the robo snake swimming at the beginning, the rover who's leg can detach and becomes a mini rover, and the crazy one at the end that switches from legs to wheels and then skates away. Wow! :icon_eek:

      I'm contemplating how Skynet might fare if it changed its name to Fishnet. :p
