Hiroshima has developed their fifth robot fish! The robot koi carp (sazan).
WHAT CAN A ROBOT KOI DO?
This robot koi has fluid tail movement and is remote controlled. This robot carp is the same as a koi carp except that it, the robot, can rotate in place and swim backwards while a koi can’t.
WHO WILL BUY IT?
This is a pretty cool innovation, but where is it gonna come in handy? It’s not like they’re gonna hire people to remote control fake fish in a pond outside a mall everyday. Well, I guess you never know. Maybe they’ll make an autonomous version. Maybe batteries are cheaper than fish food. Check out the pic.
MORE ROBOTIC FISH
By the way, as a lover of the Robot Koi, you’ll appreciate another awesome robotic fish demonstration at the London Aquarium.
