At Least It's Not A Spider: Pentagon Teams Up With Universities To Create 'Attack-Proof' Robotic Worm

August 10, 2012



Because all robots should be invincible so we don't stand a chance when they finally begin their assault on humanity, DARPA has teamed up with a group of universities (all of which should expect some hate-mail over the weekend) to create this 'attack-proof' robotic worm that looks like a peen. And not a very good looking peen either.

Engineers have created a robot that mimics a worm's movements - crawling along surfaces by contracting segments of its body.

The technique allows the machine to be made of soft materials so it can squeeze through tight spaces and mould its shape to rough terrain.

It can also absorb heavy blows without sustaining damage.

That's it, I give UP. I'm tired of trying to inform the masses of the impending robot-apocalypse and not being taken seriously. Why do I even bother? "To give your otherwise meaningless life some significance?" Haha, that is why I do it, isn't it? Man, I'm one sad sack of shit.

Hit the jump for a worthwhile video highlighting the robot's penis-ness.

Thanks to Pogonophile, Nick, Sheppy and Xlikinho, who still believe in spreading the good word. Well good, I'm tired of doing it myself.

    Ok a chinese finger-trap with sewn ends and little robotics...try a non rubber mallet next time!

  • Creepy.

    pentagon is ran by aliens already - bots will overtake the machine-world soon - with the bot-net here they made it true ! anyway nice job GW - keep on alerting us -

    RC Dildo. This will only get more interesting.

  • its about time they made something to take the place of those rediculous fake arms they give patients. with this thing, more flexibility can be given and they could even use a humans eletrical signals from the brain to the arm to make it work like a real arm. good job!

    Tentacle arms for humans? Great idea! :D
