Festo AirJelly – robot jellyfish at Pop!Tech 08

This morning opened with a helium-filled, robotic jellyfish floating serenely above a rapt, suddenly very awake audience. Makers Festo took the stage briefly to talk about how they are using engineering found in nature to create these organic-looking, eerily familiar robots. Their hope is in creating beautiful robots, they will inspire young people to get involved with science and engineering.
