Robot Tuna oceanwards

I had a friend who worked on this project, years ago. He built a pike as a scale model test for the RoboTuna II, and it looks like they’ve implemented some of his ideas. He always had somewhat mixed feelings about the defense applications of his project, and sure enough, the Tuna will (somewhat) soon be patrolling the ocean for the navy. (The pike almost got bought by Disney; “can you make it cute?”, they wondered.) On the other hand, how much damage can a robot fish do, really? Maybe we don’t want to know? It’s unlikely to blow up civilians, in any case, unless they’re scuba diving, in which case they totally deserve it.
