What if snakes are capable to plant bombs in your garden?

Israeli scientists announced that the snake-robot project, initiated in 2009, is nearing its final stages and ready to be launched.

Though the United States has the most powerful military, Israel, a country of 7 million, produces the most sophisticated hi-tech military hardware. Major buyers of Israeli military hardware include the US, EU, Brazil. Among all, India imports the largest amount of Israeli military hardware and Israel is the second largest military hardware trading partner of China, who gets most of its hi-tech military hardware components from after Russia.

Using reptiles or insects for information-gathering and killing may have been the favorite scene of Hollywood spy movies in the 1970s, in reality, these technologies are pretty much immature and unrealistic… till now.

To strengthen its military, Israel army researchers are working on developing a new weapon of war known as the ‘snake-robot’. The researchers spent a significant amount of time studying the movements of live snakes, and implemented it mechanically into the robot to stimulate all movements like real snakes, modeling the slithering mechanoid on biological examples, to ensure that the robotic equivalent mimics them correctly. It can also respond to human movements.

Controllable by laptop, the ‘robot-snake’ is equipped with camera and microphone capable of recording both video and audio across a variety of battlefield terrains, sending images back to the base live.

With its flexible joints, the ‘robot-snake’ can slither around and squeeze through caves, tunnels, pipes, crevices buildings and into the soil. It can also hoist itself up, snake-charmer style, to view over obstructions to its line of vision.

The deadliest feature is however, that the ‘robot snake’ is capable to plant bombs and mines in designated location. It can slither over to the enemy camp and drop ‘feces-bomb’ at the main entrance.

Such ‘snake-robot’ also comes with ‘suicide’ feature. If caught, it can initiate a self-destruct sequence, killing the enemies. It is also potentially able to explode on a target destination, though after which it isn’t good for much any more.

The demonstration above used camouflage skin, real python skin based on terrain color would be used in military scenario.

Should the model succeed, the Israeli army will be planning on a ‘war robot scorpion’ and ‘war robot fly’.

AWESOME!!!

Metal gear solid snake! :mrgreen:

DOOD…i was about to said that hahaz ><

wow…robot animal come to reality…now that’s fantasy to reality…i like it ><
but…if war robot animal and war robot insects finally come to reality…
than what about “war robot dinasours”…
owh ■■■■…they gonna create Metal Gear!!!
Metal gear Rex , Metal gear Ray, Metal gear Zeke, etc…come come to the real world ><
and even metal gear Gekko exist in the future…for like 5 to 10 years later… OMG!!!..at that rate…bullets and rocket launchers will be immUNE!! no one can stop the military liao XD…
at that time…the existence of a human code named “solid snake” and “Ninja Raiden”…existed to reality…><
hahaha

btw dood…what metal gear solid you playing…now i’m playing metal gear solid 4 ><

lol, a war robot dino is pretty much useless, its too bulky, too resource-intensive & can be shot down easily by tanks or planes.

a snake is still pretty much noticeable. imagine if they succeed in developing a robotic-ant for such purposes, it would be near impossible to defend against.

anyway, im always amazed by how such a small country…

… can be the 6th most militarily powerful nation in the world.

lol…if those robot animal, dinosaurs do really come to reality, u will be facing the problem-lack of money to buy one~ :mrgreen: i’m sure is very expensive… :twisted:
impossible government will give us free~ :wink:

Believe it or not, I still have not played MGS4 since the day I bought it over a year ago. It is still sitting in my cupboard in a seal plastic wrapper. I HOPE I can find some time to play this next month.
