Mil-spec snake robot

Mil-spec snake robot

I’m digging this Israeli military robo-snake(!) of which each segment packs its own power supply, sensors, actuators, and microcontrollers. Looks like the business end has a camera ringed with IR LEDs. (See the snake in action in this video.) [Via Dvice]

    What military spec is this meeting? Those segments are made out of very brittle photopolymers, the wires are sticking out the sides and don’t look like silver plated copper wire with teflon jackets, etc. This looks like a college engineering project. Drop it once and that thing isn’t going anywhere.

    It looks like a tapeworm. *shudder*
