coming to a pond near you ...

today we had a nice get-together in Holland where this fish was shown. it's swimming behaviour
is still in research phase, but it does swim forward and can turn left and right.

It's builder apparently wants the beach for himself next summer, as he plans a very much larger version after
testing this one.

some more photo's of the event :

It may well appear as a kit. it's being developed by Norbert Bruggen I believe.

An earlier prototype on Vimeo, showing the internals, co-connected servos with PIC microcontroller to interpret the correct swimming actions and the R/C pulses.
