AirJelly houses two lithium-ion polymer accumulator batteries rated at 8 V and 400 mA, which can be completely charged in half an hour and are
AirJelly's sole source of power. A connected central electric drive unit transmits the force to a bevel gear wheel and then to eight spur gears in
sequence. These gears power eight shafts, each of which activates a crank; these in turn move the jellyfish

Hehe I thought the same thing when I saw it...."I gotta have one". I think they would be great as a possible probe for another planet or moon.I'm

one....pretty amazing though.
It is still so amazing to see the great things that we as human beings can accomplish. Makes me think of all the technological advancements that have
been made over the past 40 years. Here is a different video of the flying Ray.
