Sharks with lasers on their heads!

Okay, not really, but I still don’t think Dr. Evil would be too disappointed.  Robot sharks are still pretty awesome.  And thanks to new research, not far from reality.

Dive in with NSF funded researcher John Long and his robotic sharks. A professor at Vassar College , Dr. Long and his team study real live sharks and their vertebral columns. They then takes these findings and design computer models and artificial vertebral columns to understand sharks’ movement and biomechanics.

Maybe lasers can be an additional feature…
