Robot Snake Moves Like a Real One


A real snake is able to curl around a pole and turn individual parts of its body to climb that pole. One of the recent robotic developments is a robo-snake that can move just like the real thing.

The robotic snake is able to climb stairs, trees, poles and more. It can even climb fences, by sliding through the cracks.

But probably the most impressive ability of the robot is that it can swim and navigate through the pipes.

Check out the video below to see the work of Carnegie Mellon University researchers in action.
