In this photo-illustration, graduate student Josh Davis (underwater, in a wet-suit) helps the RoboPike breach out of the water in order to show how well the robotic fish might be able to swim one day. Photographed at the Department of Ocean Engineering Testing Tank Facility at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The idea for the image of the RoboPike breaching came from Professor Triantafyllou, whose dream it is for a robotic fish to swim well enough to be able to jump out of the water.
