Carnegie Mellon's Snake Robot

This is a modular snake robot from Biorobotics Lab, Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. The robot wiggles around, twists, turns, climbs walls and flight of stairs, swims and does a host of other things that other conventional legged or wheeled robots cannot do.

What I am not sure about is the snake robot's raison d'etre. I suppose it can be used for military purposes and in law enforcement. However, the YouTube video of the robot looks pretty amazing. That snake is very dynamic. Stats for Dynamic RobARTics Trending: Older & Mild
