The Jesus Robot Cometh
If Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) researchers pull off their current project, robots everywhere will have something of a savior to call their own. The researchers are working on a robot that will be able to walk on water similar to a basilisk lizard. The basilisk lizard is known as the Jesus Christ lizard (seriously) thanks to its ability to scamper across the surface of water with its rear legs flailing. The lizard's ability to imitate JC is the product of millions of years of evolution (that's if you believe in evolution, of course), while CMU's researchers have gotten a four-legged prototype up in running in far less time.
Here's hoping for a water to wine robot next. He'd certainly be a hit at a robot wedding.
