While Aquaman may have thought he and Aqualad were cool getting to ride around on seahorses, the in reality strange little sea creature might actually have a more interesting role for surface-dwellers - better robotics.
Thanks to efforts examining the square shape of the seahorse, robots could be come better, tougher and even more coordinated in the future.
Deriving inspiration from the curious square-shape of the seahorse tail, researchers think it might be the next step in providing better strength and flexibility to engineering and robotics applications.
