From a technical point of view, this device can be called an electronic device that turns on when it comes into contact with water.
This “toy” for children and adults was invented several years ago by Japanese engineers and designers. In principle, scientists and engineers of the Land of the Rising Sun have long been leaders in the process of creating various technical innovations, which then become popular throughout the world.
That is what happened with the fish-robots, the demand for which only grows every year.
The electronic device inside the waterproof plastic case consists of an electronic microcircuit (control element) and a micromotor. Of course, there must still be a power supply.
Its role is usually performed by small batteries (for example, alkaline RL44, A76 batteries or the like). Artificial fish sizes can be different, and the most common are “toys” about 7–8 cm long.
The color scheme of aquarium robots is diverse: red, blue, green, black, gray, spotty, striped. It is impossible to list all types of coloring these “toys”.
Light-emitting diodes, which are mounted in the housing of the device, turn on when the ambient light decreases. In the evening and at night, the aquarium is illuminated by the fish themselves, it is a very original nightlight, where the light source is a flock of floating robots, very similar to the real inhabitants of the water element.
Relatively recently invented, small water robots have received the international name RoboFish, which literally means “robot fish”. Accurately and without excessive fantasy.
Robotic fish can swim in any water tank. They can be run in an ordinary jar, in a bath, in a mini-aquarium, in a children’s pool.
- The main advantage is that in this case it is not at all necessary to acquire and use auxiliary technical equipment – filters, aerators, compressors.
- Aquarium chemistry is not necessary to combat algae, since it is sufficient to simply pour out the old water and pour fresh water.
- There is no need to buy food for fish and, accordingly, to clean the aquarium from debris.
In addition, these decorative fish can get sick, and the only “disease” of RoboFish is associated with a drop in voltage of autonomous batteries.
As in the present “live” aquarium, aquamir inhabited by robot fish, you can decorate with underwater grottoes and castles, arrange and fix artificial plants (and not necessarily water plants!), Beautifully lay a multicolored primer and even tint with non-aggressive dyes. In short, using RoboFish at home or in the office allows you to turn your personal fantasy to full power.
Of course, robots (including those similar to fish) will never completely replace living things. Artificial moving fish will not suit lovers of real, natural nature.
However, as a toy or a bright decoration, an aquarium with RoboFish can decorate any room and bring joy to your children!
