+ - Virginia Tech develops robotic jellyfish for undewater surveillance

Submitted by Dave_Minsky
Dave_Minsky (2576187) writes "The Cold War was famous for underwater spying with submarines, but now the U.S. military could have a new underwater spy tool: Cyro, the robotic jellyfish.

CNN reports that the new robot was designed by Virginia Tech's School of Engineering. It's 5 feet, 7 inches wide and weights 170 pounds. The $5 million project was funded by the U.S. Naval Undersea Warfare Center and the Office of Naval Research.

Battery power limits the capability of the new robot, but the goal is to create a self-powering, autonomous robot that could be used for underwater surveillance or to monitor the ocean environment, CNN says."
