A group during Johns Hopkins University combined a drone, UAAV – an unmanned aerial-aquatic vehicle, that can transport underwater and is named a Flying Fish.

Developed over a past dual years by robotics researchers a Flying Fish is propelled in a atmosphere and underneath a H2O by a singular engine and propeller. In a atmosphere a column spins quickly, though when it dives next a H2O surface, it slows down. It speeds adult again as a car is about to lapse to a air. The Flying Fish could fly autonomously during 48 km/h to a land to a water, dive in to collect environmental data, then fly behind to a base. The Flying Fish can be seen in action, in a video below.
