Tentacles

Seems like everyone is doing a non-reading related blog for today, so I’ll follow lead. The word tentacle was mentioned in the reading and it made me think of these two ¬†tentacle related posts I found earlier. Neither of them is really relating to the notion of a branching out tree of information, but they’re still pretty cool. First one is just on abnormal octopi, and the second is a jellyfish-like flying contraption. Interesting how lots of engineers are designing nature inspired machines.

…guess I have a fondness for jellyfish because of being stung three times in my life and that one scene in “Finding Nemo”
