Studio Diip’s ‘Fish on Wheels’ is a robotic four-wheeled car, attached to a bespoke tank that includes a webcam that tracks the goldfish’s movements.
The tracking data is relayed to an Arduino microchip, which then drives the vehicle in whichever direction the fish is moving.
The studio said: “Our pet fish have always been limited to their water holding area known as ‘the fish tank’. In an attempt to liberate fish all over the world, the first self-driving car for fish has been developed. Hopefully this invention will encourage more development in enhanced pet mobility, so pet animals can travel the world more freely.”
