Cretan robot octopus conquers the sea!!!

The famous by now octopus robot created by Greek engineers at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas in Greece has finally conquered the sea!

The world’s first robotic octopus, just like a real-life octopus, the robotic octopus propels itself forward by pumping its eight limbs in a synchronised motion, a process known as “sculling”.

The robot is made of flexible silicone and has webbing between its tentacles, which makes it move even faster through the ocean. It can also pick up and carry objects.
