Fish on Wheels by Studio diip

Kickstarter Updates
Fish on Wheels is an aquarium on wheels that enables fish to drive wherever they want to go. Finally some freedom for our aquatic pets that have so far been limited to their fish tanks!

You can use Fish on Wheels as a normal aquarium and switch it on at any time to let the fish drive the aquarium around. In February 2014 we decided to build a fish drivable car to demonstrate that computer vision technology can also…
