Researchers at New York University Tandon School of Engineering have created a bionic zebrafish using 3D printing materials to aid in research into fish behaviour and potentially steer schools of real fish away from hazardous areas. “The morphology of the robots is very important in our research. We often 3D print replica models using ABS plastic. When we try to mimic size and texture, we also use silicone molds,” said Roni Barak Ventura, Research Assistant at the Dynamical Systems Laboratory, in New York.
