The MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (MITSCAIL) unveiled one of its latest developments for documenting marine life on March 21 – a soft robotic fish that can swim alongside sea life. According to an MIT report “using its undulating tail and a unique ability to control its own buoyancy, the fish, dubbed SoFi, can swim in a straight line, turn, or dive up or down” and is controlled by a waterproofed Super Nintendo controller. MITSCAIL hopes the SoFi will be able to do close observations and to interact with marine life, without disturbing real fish. Credit: MITCSAIL via Storyful
