Many scientific institutions in the world are trying to recreate the living creations of nature in the form of robots. A team of researchers from South Korea and the United States managed to create a robot that looks like a water strider and simulates its movement through water. The insect is able to repel from water due to surface tension – the water meter is repelled from the surface of the water without breaking it. Scientists used an ultrahigh-speed camera and shot insects on it, thanks to this they were able to recreate the movements that a water meter makes during jumps.
