What did people dream for the year 2020, 20 years ago? Flying cars, teleportrs, androids and other futuristic machines.
Well, today in 2020 there is still nothing even close to those dreams … except one…
I closed the NEPTUNE concept, eliminating fish-like “side fins” because the technology is too risky for the tough underwater environment. In their place, I design another type of side blades controlled by special jet sprays.
A graphene electrodes on each side will generate a high voltage electric field over the robot, protecting it from predators.
NEPTUNE is now becoming ATLAS and will not only be an explorer but also a “builder” of the Deep Sea.
Isn’t this futuristic enough for 2020?
