A robot from Carnegie Mellon University that looks and moves like a snake was on Jimmy Fallon this week.
Literally on Fallon.
Howie Choset, a robotics professor at CMU, brought Snakebot to "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" for an episode that aired Tuesday.
Choset told Fallon the robot could be a tool for search and rescue workers, could inspect nuclear power plants or could perform minimally invasive surgery, if it was smaller, of course. He said the robot is great because it can go places humans and conventional machines can't.
