Platypus goes to China!

Paul recently traveled to Nanjing to begin working with NUST and the airboats.  Zesheng and Yaonon did most of the work making the boats work in a beautiful NUST pond.

We also showed the boats at a robotics exhibition at a huge new technology park just outside Nanjing.

We are looking at the possibility of opening Platypus-China with researchers from Nanjing University.  Specifically, Platypus-China would look at shrimp and sea cucumber farms.
