An autonomous robotic jellyfish that can chase after me in the water? No thank you, science. Nevertheless, that's what the researchers at Virginia Tech's College of Engineering hath wrought. The team is developing a prototype of a multi-legged "sea creature" (nicknamed Cyro) that may one day inhabit our waters. Why? I don't know, I was busy screaming. In other recent news of bionic creatures, there is the Festo BionicOptor Dragonfly Robot, which can "assume almost any position in space." I assume we'll be using this technology to wreak havoc upon our enemies from the sky. Videos of our impending doom, below.
