Robotic Red Snapper

robot_sea_breamFolks at the University of Kitakyushu  have created a Sea Bream or Red Snapper robot.

Hand painted scales round out this completely realistic looking fish.  The fish can be outfitted with various sensors and fit right in with other fish without disturbing them.

The robot weighs 15.4 lbs and swims and floats just like real fish do.

The engineers claim it is easy to mass produce the robot.  Watch out as swimming with robotic fishes will soon be the next attraction at Disneyland.
