Imagine a world where your Taxi Driver wasn’t a human, or even some kind of artificial intelligence… But a living, swimming… Goldfish?

I had to rub my eyes too, but it turns out our Israeli Scientists taught a Goldfish how to drive a “car.”

Check it out:

The vehicle is driven using a camera which records the fish’s movements and translates them into directions.

Using some fish food & a battery (not dissimilar to a Tesla?) the “car” was able to be driven around!

The point of this study was to test the fish’s navigational abilities.

How about it? Do you think one day Goldie or Freddy might be driving us around?
