The Aqua underwater robot


From researchers at McGill University's Centre for Intelligent Machines, a new underwater robot called the Aqua with six indivudally controlled flippers for getting around. At first we were like, "So what?", but the people behind the Aqua say that because each flipper on the robot can be controlled independently, it's able to remain silently in place while underwater and record what's going on around it without causing a disturbance, something that can't be done with undersea robots that use propellers or jets.
