Water walking Robot

Robot that walks on Water
A team over at Carnegie Mellon University are working on a robot that can walk on water. It will work in a similar way that a Basilisk does in that it can dash across water keeping afloat. A prototype is still being worked on although test simulations are showing positive. It makes you wonder if taking a trip from Dover to Calais in the future will be made in a robot which “dashes” across the water rather then on a boat or in the channel tunnel.

    This seems like a 21st century variant of the paddlewheeler. Nifty, yes, but a paddlewheeler nonetheless. The screw-drive propellor won that battle many decades ago.
