Otterbots have been used before to make close up recordings of sea otters. What other uses could otterbots have? Industry, research, espionage or military purposes perhaps? An amphibious four legged robot would seem like a very useful thing, and otters are of course the perfect template.

Here is a pretty cool example: http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P18229/public/Home

>The goal of this project is to design an amphibious robot which can mimic the movements of otters both in and out of water. The final product should be able to swim at the surface of water, walk on land, and transition between land and water. The expected result is a functional prototype with systems that can ultimately be used in other devices for military, investigation, and research purposes in the future.

Just doesn't have quite the otter energy yet.

>>2239 It's doing a good job simulating a very tired otter.
