This Robotic Sea Turtle Moves Through The Water With Breathtaking Grace


Naro — tartaruga is a robotic sea turtle developed by researchers at ETH Zurich University, and as these pool tests demonstrate, it moves with such ease underwater that it appears to have been born beneath the waves. Its flippers have an incredibly lifelike motion, and were it not for the giant clear dome where its head should be, it could easily be mistaken for one of mother nature’s creations.
