Snookie Takes to the Water

Researchers from the Technische Universitaet Muenchen in Germany have developed Snookie, an underwater robot that is made with an artificial sensory organ similar to those found in blind fish. Made of plexiglass and aluminum, the bot has 6 propeller gondolas to move it in the water and is aware of obstacles both in front of it and on either side. Future applications may be searching for airplane wreckage, inspecting sewage pipes and other underwater missions.
