Scientists have designed and developed a robotic shrimp that's eerily similar to the pistol shrimp. The pistol shrimp is just a few inches in length and has a massive claw that is so strong it can knock out its prey with the shockwave when the claw snaps. Once the claws come together, bubbles develop, collapse and shoot out a bolt of plasma that creates a flash of light with temperatures reaching 8,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Researchers explain how they designed a robotic claw inspired from the pis ...
