Swimming snake robot


I’ve been on a big robot kick lately. I even subscribe to Robot Magazine and read the articles – yes, I do more than just look at the pictures. So when I see things like this swimming robot snake (with video), I am curious. As before, I still want my robotic swimming minions with frickin’ lasers on their heads. Always allow for lasers, folks. Always.

Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the ACM-R5 is a radio-controlled amphibious robot designed to move like its real world counterpart. It can slither or swim underwater for 30 minutes on a full charge. Inside, you’ll find an intricate sensor system (attitude/torque), small-sized camera, and a 32bit micro controller.
