Bionic Robot, Aqua Penguin

This robot swims under the water almost like a penguin, he knows how to navigate, maneuver in limited space and change its course. Hydrodynamic shape and motion system based on its natural counterparts. Inside Aqua Penguin, is an electric motor, which actuates the wings, which in fact he is repelled by water. The ability to bend his body robot with patented technology was fin-structure, which was obtained from the caudal fin of fish. Bionic penguins are designed to be submerged completely autonomous. Three-dimensional intelligent sonar system lets the robot navigate in space and to avoid collisions, including when the penguins are in the group. Office of the robot is carried out by flexible longitudinal rack. Festo engineers from Hanover (Germany), inspired by his work, not going to stop there, they created Air penguins as well as the mechanical arm, which can handle with care fragile items.
