Eelume is the next big step forward for robots, which is weird considering it doesn’t actually have any legs.
It’s basically a robotic snake and it has been designed for underwater inspection and repair. Eelume is currently being used for repairs on a few oil rigs as part of its rigorous testing regime.
This ingenious snake consists of various tubes with cameras, sensors and tools. The tools are interchangeable, and there are a few on offer, including scrubbers, grabbers and observation cameras.
Because it’s so small, it can also crawl into spaces that a human can’t reach.
It’s not available on the market yet, but there are plans to introduce a cheaper 3D-printed model and a model that can withstand intense pressure.
