Creepy robot awesomeness

This is a video of a “soft robot”.  There are no hard parts, gears, springs or motors in this device.  George Whiteside  and his lab from Harvard created this robot which is capable of  several unique styles including walking, crawling, and slithering.

Does this remind anyone else of the face suckers from Alien?  … insert shiver here

  1. Okay, seriously…this robot creeps me out like nothing else. I actually did a post a couple of weeks ago about creepy robots and at that point, the creepiest one that I had seen was the “Robot Girlfriend” – WAAAAY too lifelike to be uncreepy.

    Anyway, at that time, I had no idea that THIS robot existed. Now I am creeped out beyond measure. Thanks for ruining my day… 😉
