I love biomimetic technology. 8) I'm going to build a customized phototrophic robotic bug this semester with instincts and behaviors. When I am able to teach biology, I'm going to let my students build creatures too in order to learn about reactions, behaviors, biomechanics, and biological systems if I can.

that same company made a fish robot that floats through the air. Can't find the video though. :(

Take my word for it, it is beautiful and epic. :P
