Even if you are deathly afraid of snakes, the 50-foot mechanical snake named Titanoboa will make all of its real-life slithering counterparts seem no more impressive than the average earthworm.

Designed and brought to life by the creative team at eatART, the giant constrictor was created to draw attention to climate change and get people talking about it again. This robotic snake is made up of 30 aluminium vertebrae and uses multiple Arduino controllers, along with coding written on Lenovo computers, so that it can coil and slither around on its own, with the same type of movements that are seen in real snakes.

Already debuted at Burning Man, the eatART team plant to take the Titanobia 50 foot mechanical snake on a tour to different festivals throughout the year.
