Creepy, modular Snake Monster robot mimics a spider

It’s more spider than snake, but a robot called Snake Monster can dial up the creep factor when it crawls around on six legs.

The latest creation to come out of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Biorobotics Laboratory, Snake Monster can scuttle across the floor and clamber over piles of loose debris. When it wriggles around quickly, it might make you reach for a fly swatter.

But this overgrown robo-bug is an example of how machines based on a modular architecture of interconnecting parts can be put together quickly for various purposes, including possible rescue platforms.

As seen in a YouTube video, the hexapod has a simple design consisting of six multi-joined legs connected to a rectangular box body. It uses an alternating tripod gait to walk around, meaning at any time three of its legs are in the air—two on one side and one on the other—while the others are on the ground.
