While it’s not quite the scale of the Jaws we all know and love, this Robotic Shark from Hammacher Schlemmer is still quite impressive.
At 2 feet long, this robo-shark is fully articulated to replicate the actual swimming motion of a real shark. It can operate in depths of up to 9 feet (perfect for the backyard pool) and can move up, down, left, right and even backwards through the water. The shark can operate up to 40 feet from it’s remote unit, which is also completely submersible, meaning you’re not limited to playing with it from poolside.
The only downside is a limited 15-minute run time before the battery requires charging again (4 hours for the initial charge, 1 hour for each subsequent charge) though additional batteries can be purchased. The shark also comes in two colors/frequencies allowing two to be used at the same time.
The RC Robotic Shark is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $99.95.
