IDF Develops Explosive Carrying Snakebot

Watch out. The next robotic snake you see may blow itself up. Developed mostly for surveillance, the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) 2 meter long snakebot can send audio and video and raise itself up to check out the war scene. Covered in camouflage, it can slither around tunnels, caves, buildings and cracks while being controlled via laptop. It was meant to find those who are buried under collapsed buildings, but in case the enemy's robotic hawk finds it first, it can self-destruct with its packed explosives.
