Got to see CMU’s Snake Robot up close and it’s really something. The bugger rolls around the floor and can climb up pipes and through holes with ease and, in a vaguely David Lynch-ian sense, scares me yet excites me at the same time. This is just a prototype but it’s definitely cool to see it working in real life. This model was wired but it had enough mobility to coil around and climb a cardboard tube. Just think what it can do to your colon.
