Do Not Mess With Fish 267,

and you thought fish were fun!

well this one looks like great fun, it was unveiled at this year’s Beijing Military Expo which opened on June 5th, but it wasn’t the tanks, missiles, and other potentially lethal military equipment that drew reporters’ attention, it was a rather strange arowana fish swimming in a large water tank installed on site, at first glance, its appearance and movements were those of an actual fish, and it was only on close inspection that one realized this was an advanced fish-like robot,

developed by Chinese company Boya Gongdao, the bionic arowana is based on the appearance and fluid motions of the actual fish. It features a variety of sensors and global vision control technology, and has a battery autonomy of 6-8 hours, the makers of this incredibly realistic robot fish believe it could be most useful in education and scientific research, as well as marine biology research, but one can’t really ignore its potential in espionage and surveillance, what an amazing piece of robotics.

Stan-seems China on the move to take over several surrounding countries given changes in key political leadership around the world. Agree the “harmless robotic fish” is just one of many things China has at their disposal to help accomplish their goal of world domination. Very scary times and glad you two moved back to London. Next few years Pacific Rim countries at risk and citizens will experience more hardship.
Regards, John & Alley

Dear jpo5626, I fear you may be correct, it does seem that China wants, demands, a far larger share of the Pacific Rim than is due to it, I just hope it dos not go pear shaped and cooler heads will prevail, best regards, Stan and Diana.
