Up until recently, the travel ambitions of pet fish had been decidedly limited, confined to the glass boundaries of their tanks through which they could only peer. But soon, thanks to a new motorized aquarium that puts fish in the driver's seat, dry land will be new terrain for finned pets to discover.
In hopes of "liberating fish all over the world," the company Studio dipp has unveiled Fish On Wheels -- the first self-driving car for fish. Using a webcam mounted over a tank of water, a fish's movement inside is tracked to send the little vehicle moving in that direction.
"By swimming towards an interesting object, the fish can explore the world beyond the limits of his tank," the studio writes. "Hopefully this invention will encourage more development in enhanced pet mobility, so pet animals can travel the world more freely."
