Biometric Robot Lobsters to explore the ocean world

A new exhibition called Design Life Now: National Design Triennial 2006 started a few days ago in which some of the most amazing robots designed on Biomimetic approach are displayed.

The top of the list is a lobster robot that mimics the real living lobster. The robot lobsters are from the Biomimetic Underwater Robot Program at the Marine Science Center of Northeastern University. These robots offer greatest performance and adaptability in the environment, which they are set to operate.

These creepy looking robots will be of great use to monitor the environment or search for mines under deep waters where it is risky for humans to go.
