In what could be the opening sequence of a sci-fi/horror flick, YouTuber Allen Pan has given a snake the ability to walk on its own four robotic feet.
“I actually feel bad for snakes,” he says in the video, highlighted by digg. “They lost their legs ― and nobody is even trying to find them.”
Pan built a tube a snake can crawl in ― “totally voluntary,” he insists ― which then moves forward on robo-legs with the snake inside, step by unsettling step.
The snake isn’t controlling Pan’s device.
But based on Pan’s footage, it certainly could be thinking about taking that next step.
