Does it have the great sound effects like in the TV show?

So it's a superfast jellyfish?

How about this

Jellyfish learn to 'swim' in the air, when Skynet comes around they add things such as life sensors and drill heads and 'Welcome to the Matrix'

This is a weird mix of amazing and disturbing... I want to explore more of the ocean but I'm not sure bionic jellyfish sounds like the best plan... I guess that's the future we live in now. Less harmful than big ships dumping heavy subs and trawls over the side.

I suppose I should be happy they are trying not to harm the jellyfish. What a weird idea. An ocean full of bionic helper jellyfish we equip with super swim fins and sensors.

They should totally be trying to harm the jellyfish, warming sea temperatures are resulting in a wicked jellyfish bloom which is threatening other species.

I vote eating them. Jellyfish is delicious.

Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could (make bionic jellyfish), they didn't stop to think if they should.

Sure. Why not, right?

Untrue! Here is a transcript from the lab!

John Dabiri :"So, we could make bionic jellyfish. But should we?"
Nicole Xu : "Hells, yeah! That sounds totally awesome!"

Give them 5 years to obtain intelligence. Then we have to nuke the oceans.
