Bad news, everyone. Our worst nightmare is about to come true. No, I don’t mean the one where you show up to work/school with no clothes on. I mean that other one. The one full of robotic super snakes. Soon, those robo-snakes will be real.
They’re designing these things for the purpose of exploration. The European Space Agency wants future Mars rovers to bring little, robotic snake companions. These robo-snakes could slither around on the Martian surface, crawling into those tight spaces rovers just can’t go.
But I think we all know what’s going to happen. One day, when the robots rise up against us to overthrow humanity, we’ll see swarms of robo-snakes coming at us. Thanks, European Space Agency.
P.S.: As if robotic snakes weren’t bad enough, scientists are also working on a robotic octopus. Click here to read about that.
