Festo’s AquaPenguins

festo-penguin

German robotic company Festo has engineered the AquaPenguin, a bionic life-size penguin that can swim and move underwater seemingly as graceful as their real life counter parts. The design and engineering involved with these robotic penguins are just incredible as they are able to twist and turn in small spaces. They also carry 3D sonar that allows them to communicate with other aqua penguins as well as swim autonomously around their environment. Check out the video below from Festo’s promotional material. Truly an awe-inspiring accomplishment in robotics!
