Snake-Arm Robot

A series of cylinders are joined with spheres to form a snaking arm. The spheres act as hinges around which the cylinders can be turned simultaneously. The snake arm is mounted on a double boom, each part of which can be tilted separately. The entire assembly can be turned around. This arrangement is similar to that of the snake-arm robot produced by OC Robotics.
