“The researchers built another octopus-inspired bot called ‘Poseidrone’ that tackled the more difficult challenge of swimming. A few different tactics were employed before engineers decided the best swimming mechanism was to give up control of Poseidrone’s arms altogether. The end result is a little kooky-looking (think a chicken flapping its wings underwater), but it gets the job done.”
 — This is also a metaphor for how to “swim” when you are drowning in “LIFE,” but suffice it to say that scientists in Italy are using biomimicry to create “soft robots” that imitate ocean creatures that are already essentially aliens, so I think our work here on earth is done. No thanks to the weathermen!
