A study conducted by the scientists of Kyushu Universityrevealed a shocking detail: that approximately 24 trillion pieces of microplastics are contained in our oceans, and this research was based on the time frame as of October 2021. We can analyze from these facts how fatal these microplastics may prove to aquatic life, thus slowly damaging the marine environment.Robotic fish. It is made from the versatile material known as “the mother of pearls”, which resides in the “clam shells”. The material encompasses different layers, from calcium carbonate composites to silk protein fillers on the opposite sides. Nanosheets made from “cyclic sugar molecules” are fabricated onto polyurethane latex and then the layers are folded onto each other through these sheets so that the debris can easily be contained inside the fish.
