Creepy Snake Bot Climbs Trees, We Stop Sleeping
Scientists at Carnegie Mellon studied the various ways in which snakes move and then "taught" those motions to their modular robot. Unlike other nature-inspired 'bots, Uncle Sam is actually composed of several repeating segments simplifying construction. The repeated segments also make building the bot bigger or smaller much easier. Enough with the science stuff though, we know what you're really here to see: the creepy video of the tree-climbing snake-bot after the break.
