Robojelly Underwater ‘Bot Powered by Hydrogen: Hopefully it Won’t Explode!

Didn’t I see something like this in an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars? This automaton kind of looks like an alien, but that’s because it’s based upon a jellyfish. That’s not the only surprising thing about this ‘bot. It’s also powered by hydrogen.

Robojelly was developed at the University of Texas at Dallas and Virginia Tech for underwater search and rescue missions.┬áThere’s a possibility that this robotic jellyfish could never run out of power since it generates fuel from its natural surroundings. It leverage the heat produced by chemical reactions between the oxygen and hydrogen and its platinum surface to power itself.

Well, I just hope it doesn’t acquire sentience, populate the oceans, and then decide to wipe us off the planet by stinging us all to death. I guess we better play nice with it.
