A robot snake, capable of recording video and sound on the battlefield, is the latest addition to the IDF’s technological achievements.

According to a Channel 2 report – click here to watch video – the spying robot, about two meters long and covered in army camouflage, mimics the movements and appearance of a real snake, slithering around through caves, tunnels, cracks and buildings, sending images and sound back to a soldier controlling the device through a laptop. The snake has a single camera on front end.

Able to bend its joints so well that it can slither through very tight spaces, the new robotic device will be utilized to find people buried under rubble of collapsed buildings. Furthermore, the snake is able to arch its body straight, allowing it to see over obstacles.

Researchers studied the movements of live snakes in order to create the most natural and realistic prototype.

A price has yet to be set for the robotic snake, which is still in being developed; however, according to reports, the IDF plans on providing their combat units with the recording devices.
