Rob, you've got it: shapes and their movements in water are extremely important, probably as much so as on land, but with a different set of requirements. The FILOSE fish robot made this clearer to me.

Great slideshow, Ann. It's interesting to see the diversity and technology range of these robots, even while they share some features in common.

Nice slideshow. A very interesting range of design styles and the thought that went into them.  All the sensor payloads are a science unto themselves.  One of the most interesting facts was that one of them had a magnetically coupled powertrain; great way to keep leaks from occurring under propulsion.

You bring to light several of the challenges designing for underwater.  Thanks for sharing.

Interesting thought.  How many of us think about what it would be like to design for robots underwater.  We are so used to thinking about designing in air.  Quite a challenge to design for underwater.  The drag, the water dynamics.  All of that could be quite a challenge.  We'd have to all go back to some of those fluid dynamics equations.  Great thought.

I too have had to spend some time in a few submarines.  And I agree it must be rough.  I always wondered if there wasn't a height limit on those serving in submarines.

Sometimes it's interesting how no matter how much we try to make things better, it's the original that performs just fine.  In some cases, I don't know if there can  be improvements, in others, I think it's the fact that the original can do 95% of the job and the other 5% aren't really missed.

I agree.  Does God's design have some unique abilities or benefits that science just can't duplicate or improve on.
