If after watching Morgan Freeman walking on the water in Bruce Almighty made you think it is only a special God effect and can never be made possible in real life then a second consideration is worthwhile.
Experts, Qinmin Pan and his fellow researchers from China have recently succeeded in developing a bionic microrobot, capable to walk on the water surface. Of course, it isn’t Freeman.
Walking onto the water surface has ever been a dream of humans. But we lack this quality, which was known to be present only in aquatic insects. But China’s new bionic robot can easily leap the water surface, without the risk of sinking, leaving behind the humans in this race.
The body of this unmatched innovation is about the size of a quarter and has almost a dozen of creepy legs with 10cm of length and weighing 11 grams in total.
The study of the team has already appeared in the journal, ACS (American Chemistry Society), and it is funded by Harbin Institute of Technology combined with the Natural Science Foundation of China.
