RoboTuna, c 2000

View showing the mechanism. Built to simulate the action of a fish, the RoboTuna was designed by American engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, (MIT), to see if a robot sub could mimic the way tuna swim. The metallic tuna proved to use less energy and to be more manoeuvrable than other robot subs.
