Amphibious Robot Snake (Video)

Here’s a cool lookin’ amphibious snake robot that can swim in the water.  It looks scary the potentials of what (harmful stuff) this robot can possibly do.

ACM-R5 is equipped with paddles and passive wheels around the body. To generate propulsive force by undulation, the robot need a resistance property as it glides freely in tangential direction but cannot in normal direction. Due to the paddles and passive wheels, ACM-R5 obtains that character both in water and on ground.
