What's that peeking around the corner, telescoping straight out of your nightmares? Why, it's none other than OC Robotics' new snake-armed robot here to lend a coiling appendage!

Hey there, not-at-all horrifying snake robot!

According to OC Robotics' website, the robot was designed to get inside locations humans cannot reach because they are either hazardous or too small. Snake-like robots have been used in the past in spots like Japan's melted-down Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

The robot could also be used in situations where a human is too creeped out to enter the room because there's a Wifi-powered tentacle on wheels rolling around and staring at things with cold machine eyes.


The latter use case probably is not in the design specs.

Snake robot: coming soon to a nightmare near you!
