Description: Water surface food finder.
How created: Designed
I wanted to create a swimmer that could find food on the surface, but was more hydrodynamic than was allowable with multiple sensors.
Performance notes: It swims on the water's surface in a wave pattern, and uses the motion of its one smell sensor to detect and orient toward food.
