RoboSea-Robo-Shark-Underwater-Robot

If you thought “Baby Shark” was going to be the only shark haunting you, you were wrong. Say hello to RoboSea’s Robo-Shark, “a bionic underwater robotic platform used in the ocean with high speed and low noise.” Robo-Shark was built with using a real shark as a sort of prototype, so it uses a multi-joint caudal fin for propulsion which reduces noise and water displacement when compared to a traditional propeller system. This propulsion system also reduces overall power consumption while still allowing Robo-Shark to travel at a speed of up to 10 knots at a depth of up to 300m. The 2 meter long Robo-Shark is also built with an omnidirectional obstacle-avoidance system that does exactly what the name implies and enough space inside for a whole host of data collection and scientific equipment. This robot baby shark is obviously being developed for underwater sea exploration and study, but we also can’t help imagine that it would be the perfect platform for some laser beams if a certain fictional super villain were so inclined.
