Robots, Robots, Everywhere...

The Navy is making jellyfish robots - http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/03/29/175713635/u-s-navy-funding-development-of-giant-jellyfish-robot

The French are coding up ants - http://newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2013/03/29/robot-ants-could-make-us-more-efficient/

Animal robots everywhere, it seems...and the ant bots have definite science fictional precedents. I don't think anyone has ever written a story with a robot jellyfish in it, though. Can anyone think of one?
