This robot water snake swims better than we do

Oh look, another robot with the potential to malfunction and turn on its creators. What fun

It was only yesterday when we were enjoying the sounds of MechBass the bass-playing robot, and now we’re treated with yet another mechanical brain-child thanks to the HiBot ACM-R5. Or as we prefer to call it, the water snake.

Looking like a metal version of the Pokémon Onyx (hello children of the 90s), the robot snake is a sure fire way to reduce Ophidiophobes to a blubbering mess.

Sure it carves through the water gracefully to a gentle and soothing sound track, but we can’t help but feel there’s a menacing power laying dormant between its slow twists and turns…
