CMU Mod Snake

Mathew Tesch, a Carnegie Mellon University PhD student in the Biorobotics Laboratory, shows off the modular snake during the Carnegie Mellon in the Community: Technology open house at Newell Simon Hall Friday, March 6, 2009. Tesch said this version of the "mod snake" has a camera installed at the head and is hard wired to preserve batteries but can operate wirelessly and remotely in very small and narrow spaces.

After speaking to Tesch, I am very interested in seeing some of the photographs they take with the mod snake. I’ve got a few ideas I’d like to try if they’d give me a couple of hours with the snake camera.
