Technology is taking inspiration from nature with Israeli military scientists creating a robotic snake to spy on enemies and plant bombs.
Presumably having giving up trying to train their pet snakes, the scientist used them instead as a model for a high-tech sneaking device.
Soldiers can control the robotic snake and follow what it sees using a remote laptop.
In addition to snooping, the robotic snake could be used to find survivors trapped in the rubble of buildings, assuming they will not die of fright when the snake slithers in.
If you are finding this a bit to hard to swallow, check out the video.
