Comments on Terranaut - Fish Explore Land With Robotic Vehicle
Ah, nothing like going for your first drive. Especially when you're a fish. On land. (Read the complete story)

"This reminds me of a Gary Larson Far Side cartoon."
(Guillermo 9/18/2006 9:25:25 PM)
"what waste of time and money."
(michel 9/19/2006 3:11:59 PM)
"Has the fish actually caught on? Does it know what its doing? Can you put a feeding station in one corner of the room?"
(Ben 9/20/2006 10:41:43 AM)
"Can the fish actually see outside the tank?"
( 9/20/2006 11:53:17 AM)
"Apparently, yes. The artist created another version of this with two siamese fighting fish, each in its own bowl. The fish would, after random motions, approach each other and then square off and perform the same 'fighting' stances that they normally would."

"I don't know. I think it needs to be done with something smarter, like a dolphin. Very smart. Although it would be extremely difficult to do the results would probably be amazing. This fish just seems to be amused."
(Ryan 9/20/2006 11:54:24 AM)
"I dissagree, this is a first step and a big one. Everyone is always out for the WOW factor. Think small then think your way up... And then maybe you can make the Dolphin Terranaut suit. "
(Dragko 9/20/2006 12:31:13 PM)
"Most interesting, my blood parrots are interested in out of the box stuff also. I even had a glass fish flash me an idea of what it would be like to live on the other side of the tank. Nice to see the fish wisper working with the aqua side of nature. Thanks so very much."

"Many years ago I had a pet snapping turtle and one winter I took it outside and let it walk briefly in the snow, just because it would then have a memory very uncommon among turtles. I later released him into the wild."

"Dude, this is NOT ETHICAL"
(Dude 9/20/2006 8:39:20 PM)
"how lame. i thought it was going to be like one of those things that people use the lean forward and it goes thing"
( 9/21/2006 8:05:29 AM)
"that is the stupidest thing I've ever seen."
(me 9/21/2006 3:18:37 PM)
"yeah, i want to explore whiteness. wonder what that looks like from a fish bowl? torture."
(hirbie 9/21/2006 8:39:58 PM)
"This is awesome. For Version 2, you should mate the bowl to a Roomba and allow the fish to clean your floor. :)"
(Stephen 9/22/2006 6:28:48 AM)
"What a great idea - a pet that earns its keep. An alternative version would be doing the same style robot with a waterproof hamster cage - in a pool-cleaning robot."
(Bill Christensen 9/22/2006 7:17:41 AM)
"This story is missing a science fiction source which I'm very happy to supply. The classic computer game "Star control 2" has a race of aliens called the Orz (which may or may not be manifestations of a single entity from another dimension). The Orz are fish like and venture out of their ships in an anthropmorphic exoskeleton type suit which allows them to board other ships in combat. http://uqm.stack.nl/wiki/Orz"
(Yossi Preminger 9/24/2006 10:23:29 AM)
"Here's a link to an Orz space marine in combat gear: http://starcontrol.classicgaming.gamespy.com/sc2/images/orz2_sc2_color.jpg"
(Yossi Preminger 9/24/2006 10:31:45 AM)
"Yossi, thanks for writing. Here's a copy of the picture, linked to the original site. I've also added linkage to your post. I've had a lot of trouble with spammers adding their own links...

Find out more about the Orz. "
(Bill Christensen 9/24/2006 12:53:59 PM)
"Next,they should create a terra-suit(with proper leg/fin holes) -for one of those recently discovered Walking-sharks of Papua New Guinea!"
(AGK 9/24/2006 12:57:29 PM)
"I think it would be cooler to have an octopus terranaut. Those things are crafty, and they have arms, so they can actualy do stuff instead of just wander around."
(MDude 9/25/2006 5:07:03 AM)
"That's not how evolution works. This offspring of this fish is just as likely to sprout legs as Airforce pilots are to sprout wings."
(Anon 10/17/2006 5:29:45 AM)
"What, are you kidding? That's exactly how evolution works. Aliens build huge monoliths that instill higher knowledge into primitive species - didn't you see 2001:A Space Odyssey?"
(Bill 10/18/2006 5:18:17 AM)
