So, some engineers have built an amphibious robot snake. When I tell some people about, my voice unsteady with excitement and joy, they ask me why the engineers built an amphibious robot snake. I do not understand why anybody would ask such a question. It seems clear to me that anybody who thought they had a shot at building an amphibious robot snake would just get right down to it. (They may have had other reasons - read about it on Geek Alerts here.)
Truly we live in a golden age.
