Cabe, thanks! I don't know if this is the one Deberah was thinking of, but I can use it for future slideshows. It does look a bit like a flying fish.

I think this is what you may looking for and it's simply called the 'jumpglider' from Stanford University:

Rob, thanks for the explanation. Guess I haven't seen any yet, since I usually notice things like that.

To me, the 2013 penny feels like it's made out of a different, lighter material. The first time I held one, I thought it was a fake. I couldn't find anything online, however, that indicates it's made of different material.

Rob, you've got me curious. What's weird about the new penny?

Deberah, if you remember the name of that flying fish robot, please let us know or post a link. We might be abel to use it in a future nautical robot slideshow.

Deberah, I agree that mind-controlled robots is an interesting development in robotics. There are different research efforts underway; we covered one of them here:

Ann,

Your quite welcome and you are so correct about the process of actualizing through visualization. Somewhere, the sparks of imagination and creativity are ignited in this process.

mrdon, thank for the enthusiastic response. I think it's your second suggestion: those of us who've been reading science fiction for years while technology has been progressing to the point where we can actualize what we've been visualizing. I think this is true in robotics, in consumer electronics, and in film (Lord of the Rings, Avatar, e.g.).

Thanks for your feedback, bobjengr. It's comments like yours that inspire me to find even weirder, more talented robots :) No sarcasm implied, I really mean it. And yes, it's tough to keep up with all this: the pace of change is mind-boggling, and reminds me of several earlier, similar phases in Silicon Valley when enough brilliant minds and research dollars, plus the right levels of underlying enabling technologies converged to produce world-changing products. You know, like the iPhone and Web browsers.
