Bioinspired Robojelly fuelled by hydrogen

American researchers have created a robotic jellyfish, named Robojelly, which not only exhibits characteristics ideal to use in underwater search and rescue operations, but could, theoretically at least, never run out of energy thanks to it being fuelled by hydrogen.
The video, provided by researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas and Virginia Tech, shows the potential of the robot as it is powered by electricity.

Spindex Tech Preview tested

A few days ago I announced Spindex. Well today I got my invitation code.

Here is how it looks:

It’s fast, especially the searching, and it has a simple, clean design. I hope this Tech Preview will get some little updates to make it really mature.

If you are using Spindex make sure you give the team some feedback 😉
