The Single “Eye” on the front of these soft robotic fish makes them look particularly “SLOBOTIC”

These soft robotic fish just look cool – I especially like the single eye on the front. I guess the real fish are not really bothered by the robot fish. I think there is a lesson in that somewhere…

“To our knowledge, this is the first robotic fish that can swim untethered in three dimensions for extended periods of time,” says CSAIL PhD candidate Robert Katzschmann, lead author of the new journal article published today in Science Robotics. “We are excited about the possibility of being able to use a system like this to get closer to marine life than humans can get on their own.”
