Someone else is probably working on robotic sharks, so the folks over at Virginia Tech had to pick another sea creature to turn into a U.S. Navy robot. They picked something a bit unusual: lion's mane giant jellyfish (Cyanea capillata).
Meet Cyro, a life-like autonomous robotic jellyfish that weighs 170 pounds and spans 5 foot 7 inches in length. The engineers proposed that such robotic jellyfish can monitor ocean conditions, explore the ocean floors, clean up oil spills and study aquatic life.
