AiKo, Anna Konda -- you two had a good run, but it's time to pass the torch onto something that slithers a bit better. Cybernetics and optical measurement scientists at SINTEF are currently creating a wheeled pipe inspection robot that would "be able to climb, navigate intersections and at any given time know its location in the pipe system." Currently, the project is still stuck in the design phase (that's the Pneumosnake pictured), with some members working on a propulsion solution while others munch on snacks develop a new visual system. Just what the world needs... robots that can maneuver out of whatever holding cell we desperate humans encage them in.

[Thanks, Isindil]
