Modular Snake Robot

If you've ever thought to yourself, gosh, I wish I had a modular snake robot with which to inspect these pipe joints I've just welded, well -- you're gonna love this video. Modular Snake Robot: Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute. This robot also has him a website. (Thanks, Katrina Corley)

    lovely robot snake action indeed! Might want to turn off the sound unless you dig on mid 90’s coked up techno, which I adore.

    Can’t worm’s get some respect. Those were worm moves before a snake was ever trying to evolve into a legless creature. These CM ginerrs have no respect for the roots of technology. That my friends is a robotic worm.
