Robotic fish uses three servos to swim

Robotic fish uses three servos to swim
  Amnon built this robotic fish. The three servos along with some distance sensors for obstacle avoidance are all controlled by a PIC 16F877A microcontroller. [Amnon] tried out three different waterproofing methods; coating the device in varnish, dipping it in hot glue, and dipping it in epoxy. The first two resulted in water damage to the ...
