Move Over Captain Planet: Robo-Fish Are Here To Save The Oceans Now!


Like I said, heroes like Captain Planet are old news! Not when we have robotic fish that was create for the “sole” purpose to detect pollutants in our ocean’s waters. You know so you don’t get three eyed mutated fish like in “The Simpsons” . Pretty neat and benefical little guys yes, but what if a shark  gobbles them up, you know since they resemble fish and all.

This beautiful fish that resembles swarvoski crystals is $30,00o to make, so I hope and pray they do not get gobbled!

The 1.5 meter long robotic fish each requires about $30,000 to make. Their purpose is to head out into the open water, take in data about water pollutants, return to a charging station about every 8 hours and while charging, submit data about water quality.

The issues with this first batch of fish is pretty clear – they’re way too expensive to be made in numbers big enough to be very helpful; their charge lasts just 8 hours so they aren’t able to have a very large range away from their charging stations; they run a pretty good risk of getting a bite taken out of them. Below is a video on the little guys!
