Iranian researchers have come up with a robotic innovation that can skim the ocean surface and remove oil.

Researchers at the University of Tehran’s International Campus on Kish Island have come up with this spinning toy-shape robot that's capable of cleaning oil spills in water. This project took more than a year to complete. The researchers have used a technique known as the "artificial intelligence optimization algorithm” to create this robot. And it’s the first robot in the world that's been built using this technique.
