Robot Koi Carp by Hiroshima

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.

    Anu – The koi robot is 80 cm (31 inches) long and weighs 12kg (26 lbs.). The fish is equipped to analyze water quality, take pictures with a CCD camera, and is designed by Ryomei Engineering – a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Industries. Thanks for asking! J-Man
