I mean, they are based on how fish sense their environment, according to the report I sorta read. And, they have to perform some tasks.
Demonstrating agility and control, the submarines will need to bump two buoys in response to colors emitted every few seconds. The vehicles will also need to show mastery of a speed trap and fire foam torpedoes through holes in a hexagonal wheel.Yep. Robots that performs tasks underwater, fire torpedoes, and deliver pizza.
Finally, the submarines will also need to deliver a pizza: They must bring two mock pizza boxes (made from PVC pipe) to a specified location.
It's not Robot Monkeys on the Moon, but it's something.
But, I gotta ask: is pizza delivery the best use of robot killer whales? What would you have an underwater killer robot do?

Punch underwater hippies. Now you may say that there are no underwater hippies, because hippies are allergic to water because they like being dirty. Many Americans are unaware of the danger that underwater hippies pose to our freedoms. We must program these robots to punch underwater hippies before it is too late.ReplyDelete
Have them locate shipwrecks, and leave flyers for take-out service on them for future salvagers. Don't forget to mention the ability to deliver pizzas right to the wreck.ReplyDelete
re the picture: But it wasn't a bot. It was a BOT LOBSTER!ReplyDelete
