Reading Time: < 1 minute

Takeaways:

  • Researchers from the Sichuan University in China have developed a new robotic fish that can absorb microplastics.
  • The robot is made from materials that interact with the heavy metals, dyes and antibiotics attached to the microplastics, which will latch onto the fish’s body.
  • Currently, it can only swim at the surface of the water, but the researchers hope they can develop a version that can dive to greater depths.
