Surf’s Up For These Robo-Penguins

robot-penguin_festo

So surfing dude penguins are not far off after all.

AquaPenguins were unveiled this week in Germany during the Hannover Messe Trade Exhibition. Festo Bionic created these robots using flexible fiberglass to mimic the real animals’ swimming movements. A sonar-type system allows these robo-animals to swim around autonomously. Quite a feat for mechanical animals I must say.Though ultrasonic transmitters are the ones that direct the AquaPenguins around the space they swim in.

Are we seeing a sequel entitled, March of the Robo-Emperor?
