Robot starfish makes debut, PZ hoping for droid squid?

It looks slimy, it’s definitely squishy, and it can sure squeeze through small cracks just like the clever marine invertbrates beloved by a certain Godless biologist who hangs around these parts. But it’s a robot and a little bit eerie to watch.

    Is it… inflating and deflating individual parts of it’s body?

    I got a really odd shiver watching that. Like, two parts creepy, one part sympathetic claustrophobia, and two parts “Aw, man, someone somewhere is finding this erotic.” Bluh.
