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.
