Scientists at Stanford University have designed a diving robot that looks very much like a human. The robot can do all kinds of research within one kilometer under water.
That’s handy, because people can’t be that deep under water. Then the pressure is too high and that is dangerous.
Hands and fingers
The robot has a hand and fingers with which it can feel things. At the location of the eyes, the robot has two cameras that can look in all directions.
Scientists can control the robot from the side. This allows them to conduct research deep in the sea.
