The Mecha-lobster...

We've had some interesting enquiries this week, but I think Thomas Rooney from the University of West England wins hands down!  He needed some bearings to use for his underwater robotics project:

"The aim is to create an underwater robot capable of utilizing home built thrusters and mechanical spider legs , later on I have plans for using it as a underwater test rig and developing a sensor for measuring and reacting to underwater currents. As the final year project of my degree I will be working with the university's sonar module to enhance the software we created for the SAUC-E event and add compensation for physical movement caused by the underwater enviroment."

We've sent him some of our plastic corrosion resistant bearings & look forward very much to hearing how he gets on with them!
