A US company named Festo has developed an underwater autonomous vehicle named the Aqua Penguin that is modeled after an actual penguin’s features. The bionic robot can swim, maneuver, and speed along just like a real penguin underwater.
The only real obvious difference between this robot and a real penguin is the glowing blue eyes which sort of make it look absolutely scary. I wouldn’t want to accidentally come face to face with one of these any time soon.
If you missed it, Festo is also the same company that has been developing various air-based autonomous animals like a jellyfish which I’ve posted about before. If you’re curious, they also have an Air Penguin.
