Flying Jellyfish Attack!!!!!

Posted: May 16, 2010 in Shadowrun, Table Top Gaming, Technology

The other day i was visiting PZ Meyers’ Pharyngula blog and saw the most amazing robot thing ever: the Festo AirJelly. It floats via helium and maneuvers via the tentacle/flagellum looking things. its beautiful,and graceful and It would also make a great addition to a cyberpunk or near future game like Shadowrun or Cthulutech.  Imagine a fleet of these things floating over a city tricked out with surveillance gear keeping an ominous eye on the sky reporting back toe the police if something suspicious is going on in some dark alley. Or how about  a much much smaller version swimming quietly  around an arcology making sure all the residents are behaving.
