Robot octopus? Wonder how long it seeks revenge for all of its grilled brethren?
Researchers in Greece, however, have made a robot octopus that can propel itself through the water using only its eight arms.
Their prototype, announced earlier this summer, has mastered a handful of different swim strokes—including some even the octopus itself can’t pull off.
The robot octopus, initially outfitted with stiff limbs, can move all of its arms in and out in unison, slowly propelling the body along in the water. It can also perform a straight-armed technique in which each arm moves in and out independently
It has eight arms to hold you… and squeeze the life out of you.
