Researchers develop car for a goldfish to drive

WE know goldfish are skilled at some things, but always thought it was limited to swimming, eating and hiding in underwater castles. However it now seems they can also be surprisingly good drivers.

A team of tech wizards at Studio Diip, which specialises in innovative image-recognition projects, have kitted up a goldfish tank with a camera and computer vision software, turning it into a robot car for their finned friends.
As the goldfish swims around in the tank, the system detects which way he’s heading and directs the car there, essentially allowing the fish to control the vehicle. “By swimming towards an interesting object, the fish can explore the world beyond the limits of his tank,” Studio Diip says.
