OceanOne: The Underwater Humanoid Robot


 Stanford University is doing some exciting things with robots; underwater robots to be more specific.  Imagine being able to explore the deep sea and hard to reach places without having to put an actual human at risk.  Well, OceanOne is a robot made for that specific purpose.  It is a human-like robot that is controlled by a human for underwater exploration.  What's even more impressive is that as a human controls the robot, they can feel what the robot is "feeling".  Usually you don't think of robots as being able to function submerged in water, but OceanOne is made for diving.  Check out the video below to see this incredible robot in action.
