Scientists have built a robotic octopus that is not only capable of swimming and moving in the same way as its biological inspiration, but that can carry objects in its tentacles.
A video of the mechanical creature has been making the rounds after the octopus’ creators, a team of researchers from the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas in Greece, presented at a robotics conference in Chicago earlier this month.
Since last year, the little robot’s speed has doubled, according to IEEE Spectrum.
In the below video, the octopus is seen crawling in a water tank and freely swimming in the Aegean Sea.
