Developed at the Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology, the Crabster is a 2 metre-tall, 600 kg tethered robot that will be used from July next year to inspect shipwrecks and track marine life. The giant bot is armed with LED spotlights, sonar, cameras and navigation sensors, and its legs are powerful enough to stay on course, even when going against the current.
