The 30-centimeters (one-foot) long transparent robotic eel, seen here with added fluorescent dye, is the brainchild of scientists from the University of California San Diego, and the University of California Berkeley.
To be utilized in saltwater, it is powered by a water-filled elastomer artificial waters, rather than a motor.
|The robotic eel was inspired by real-life transparent eel larvae.|
I only mention any of this to warn the Japanese (and myself) that their next eel meal may not taste as delicious as in the old days.
