IT’S A SHARK, IT’S A FISH, IT’S A…… ROBOT?

Although it may appear to be a shark, what your seeing is quite the opposite. This brand new invention from Boston Engineering is a highly innovative device that combines remote controlled drone technology with a fish like exoskeleton. Not only does the device code-named GhostSwimmer have the ability to swim silently and undetectable, it also provides the operator with vital underwater visuals that were not possible before its inception.

Check out the video at the bottom to see the GhostSwimmer in action!
