Mitsubishi's Robotic Carp

The Washington Times says that a robotic carp was invented for some reason. It seems that Japanese researchers at Mitsubishi have spent over $1 million to create a life-size robotic carp. The robotic fish is about 3 feet long and moves about 12 inches per hour. Except for the eyes, this fish looks like the real thing. One possible use might be to catch Koi Carp Poachers which are rumored to bring in $80k each. Mitisubish also plans to create a fish tank (virtual aquarium) filled with robotic replica long extinct marine creatures "just for fun".
