This artificial fish is actually w robot to carry out the task for protecting endangered aquatic species and it’s pretty cute too until some people can’t distinguish that it’s a fake fish.
The band if this fish is called SOFI and it was designed by researchers at MIT.
The location of SOFI is controlled around the ocean by an independent remote and has an fisheye lens to take photos of marine life.
More importantly m, SOFI is built to be as non-threatening as possible to the marine life so it can observe the ocean without injuring its environment.
The robot fish is also used by Scientists to monitor the endangered species, like certain whales and their birthing process.
SOFI is also small enough to get beneath coral reefs, so it can explore what lies beneath.
Are you excited to see what the new robot fish will find in the ocean?
