Ocean One was created by a team of scientists at Stanford University and displayed in the French city of Marseille.

The robot will help researchers explore underwater archaeological sites that are too deep for human divers.

Ocean One already was able to sift through the wreckage of a 17th-century warship and bring a delicate ceramic pot back to the surface, officials said.

Here's Ocean One digging for your nightmare.
