The technique of digging effectively into sand has always been a difficult task for those who wish to anchor into the water. But, with surprising technique derived from the razor clam, which burrows effectively into the water. It’s quite amusing to look at, too.
Although the razor clam’s burrowing is slow, it goes straight in, and is an extremely effective way of burrowing. So, a student and professor and MIT created the RoboClam, a burrowing apparatus that behaves a lot like the Razor Clam, burrowing with two separate halves that open and close.
