Robo-fish powered by battery ‘blood’

Here is an article that caught my eye as something like this might have really big and great potential for robotics or anything else requiring batteries.


Researchers have created a robotic fish powered by a battery fluid that its developers dub ‘robot blood’.

The roughly 40-centimetre soft robot doesn’t have solid batteries — instead it is propelled by a dual-function fluid that stores energy and moves the fish’s fins. The approach allows the machine to store more energy in a smaller space and operate for longer periods without the need for heavy and cumbersome battery packs.


But here is the really amazing part of the development IMO


The approach increased the amount of energy stored in the robot by 325%, compared with a machine that has a separate battery and hydraulic-fluid system, says Shepherd. The team calculated that the robot would be able to function for 37 hours without requiring recharging.

Important first step to one day having real feasible human like robots.

I'm more excited about that power storage as well.
One thing holding back the renewable energy revaluation is power storage.

Yep the 325% really caught my eye too

By this logic we shouldn't have computers because they might be used to do bad things.
Or cars.
Or guns.
or kitchen knives.
or robotics at all.
