Swimming Robotic Micro-Scallop: Capable Of Swimming Through Eyball Fluids

A team led by Prof. Peer Fischer from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany [http://www.is.mpg.de/fischer] has developed an artificial micro-swimmer, called “micro-scallop”, which can swim through viscous fluids by opening and closing its shells at different rates. It can even zip around your eyeballs. More details about these swimming robotic micro-scallop in video.
