  • JellyChute is a launchable parachute that is inspired by the motion of the jellyfish. It sits on top of a bottle that is launched by an aquapod launcher. After reaching its maximum height the water bottle drops down and is held to the parachute by strings so the the parachute is properly weighted. The air pushing on the folded up parachute will open it and slow the fall of the JellyChute, while an accelerometer will register the change in acceleration and change the fiber optic tentacles color from red to a color wheel.
