Any of you remember the cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? I certainly looked forward to that show during my weekends back when I was a wee lad, and I do follow the current rendered version of the four turtles now, but the folks over at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, or KAIST for short, have done something rather interesting – by presenting the idea of a controllable water-resistant reptile, which is pretty much in the same way as that of the remote controlled turtle that KAIST is currently working on.
Most folks would see green turtles as pets, but this curious team over at KAIST decided that if they could not find some sort of mutagen goo to turn these turtles into deadly fighting machines in the ninja art, they might as well tech them up to get them responding to the humans’ every command. Basically, the KAIST team manipulates the turtle’s line of sight in order to make it move where they want it to, so fret not, no electrical shocks or other kinds of torture were involved in the development of such remote controlled turtles.
