Researchers from the University of Michigan College of Engineering have developed a snake-like robot called OmniTread.

This machine can climb over vertical objects, traverse rough terrain, make its way through small tunnels and even span wide gaps, making it ideal for search and rescue or military operations. And at only 9 pounds, OmniTread can be easily transported. This is a good example of technology mimicking nature.
