Robot dolphins the future of marine entertainment
Edge Innovations, a company in New Zealand, is working with some of Hollywood’s best animatronic effect creators to make robotic dolphins that will be nearly indistinguishable from real-life animals!
While a robot dolphin may seem a bit like something out of Black Mirror at first glance, the animatronic could be a good way for people to experience sea life while also cutting down on the amount of animals in captivity. This innovation, of course, also comes with a big price tag.
One animatronic dolphin could cost an aquarium at least $26.3 million USD!
