wow that sounds extremely interesting. I would love to have a robot octopus. Heck i would love to have any robot!

The information on the anatomy of the sucker and arm is fascinating.

Good find!

You have to thank Level_Head for that find. I was looking for a reference on how the octos biology works to stop bleeding almost instantly. I did not find what I was looking for (recommendations solicited) but did come across the article.

I'd looked at the beginning of this paper a while back, and expected it to pertain mostly to the mechanics for the benefit of constructing robotic analogues. It's a very nice recap of what's known about cephalopod (mostly octopus) brain organization, as well as intricate detail about how the arm works with nice sectional views.

A good find indeed, and thanks for reminding me not to skip over something based on first impression!
