New robotic snake revealed

  • 28 September 2011

A new robotic snake that can wriggle into dangerous and difficult places has been created by engineers in Bristol.

It's the first of its kind in the world and took 10 years to make.

The machine can be used to enter spaces that humans can't go, like inside a nuclear reactor where dangerous radiation levels could harm people.

And it's got a claw at the end to bring samples back to the scientists for testing.
