Robotic Sea Turtle
In past blog posts, we have talked about a robotic fish and a robotic water snake. Well, those humans are at it again. In a recent article on Gizmodo, we are introduced to a robotic sea turtle developed at ETH Zurich University. The robot moves quite well underwater, but you would never mistake it for the real thing.
What could be next? Robotic mermaids?
After a journey of 9,000 miles on the surface of the Pacific Ocean, the Wave Glider autonomous robot known as Papa Mau landed in Australia on November 20th. Along the way, it gathered a wealth of scientific data. For the full story, check out this article by Daniel Terdiman for C|Net.
Are Mermaids Real?
Once again, we have a news story in which the US government is reported to have announced, "Mermaids are not real." In response to this, more than one reader commented, "If the government says they are not real then they are real!"
Take a look at the article and watch the video at Yahoo News and share your opinion.
