Researchers make use of wearable computers on sharks underwater

Animal researches never seem to end and this especially holds true for sharks. We have seen many episodes of shark behaviors on Nat Geo and we still can’t forget about the movies we have watched over the weekends in which the sharks prove to be the deadliest of all the sea creatures. Though we might think that we know quite a lot about the deadly fish, researchers still feel that there is more about the shark which is yet to be discovered. Researchers who want to get some more insight into the behavior of the sharks are making their attempts by attaching various gadgets to a bunch of sharks.

These devices are closely related to the concepts of GoPro and a sportsband and they make sure of sensors and cameras. The sensors continuously monitor the shark’s behavior on different benchmarks and the cameras make their videos under sea. It appears that the researchers were right after all in feeling that they still need to discover more because with the help of this research facilitated through gadgets, they have removed a misconception about the way these animals move. Scientists have previously concluded that sharks glide effortlessly through the sea but what researchers have found is that the sharks actually power swim to traverse vast expanses of water.

On the plus side, the researchers from University of Hawaii and University of Tokyo have also managed to end up with some underwater footage that the subjects (unknowingly) took themselves embedded after the jump.
