Being Trapped Seems Less Scary Than This Robot Snake Rescuing You

Being Trapped Seems Less Scary Than This Robot Snake Rescuing You


impressive piece of robotic engineering

In its latest stunt the robot snake is used to explore a collapsed, pancaked building and search for survivors. Without legs or wheels the robot can easily flip and flop over any kind of uneven terrain, and as is demonstrated in this clip, it can be automatically deployed by a rescue dog into spaces the animal can’t fit. But what’s even more impressive is that Texas A&M University apparently has an entire fake destroyed town called Disaster City for conducting tests just like these.
