â€œTai-robot-kun,â€ is an underwater survey robot that looks like a giant fish. The robot was developed by the University of Kitakyushu.
The giant fish weighs 7 kgs, and is made from a silicone body, covered in realistically hand-painted scales. It also features a unique propulsion system that allows its tail to generate realistic swimming movements.
I am glad that this fish robot actually serves a purpose that will benefit us all, rather than it being designed to solely showcase human absurd capabilities. I just hope this technology doesn't get to the wrong hands.
