A team of Harvard researchers have developed fish-inspired robots that can synchronize their movements like a real school of fish, without any external control. (Watch the robots in action on Tech Briefs TV.)

"Insights from this research will help us develop future miniature underwater swarms that can perform environmental monitoring and search in visually-rich but fragile environments like coral reefs," said lead researcher of the "Bluebot" Prof. Radhika Nagpal.

What do you think? Can 'Bluebots' Preserve Coral Reefs?
