We’ve seen plenty of snake robots, but normally they just slither in the water or up a pole. This one has no problems climbing around a human. The latest research from Carnegie Mellon University’s robotics lab, has controllers automatically adapting the robot’s shape to changes in the environment. In this video, the robot climbs a 4-inch pole, transitions to a 2-inch pole, and then crawls up someone’s arm.

It should be noted that it doesn’t have to use enough force to be uncomfortable while it is doing so.
