Spine Robot Tentacle Arm by Survival Research Labs

Spine Robot is a working prototype of a decidedly tentacle-like robotic arm. The arm’s nimble movements are made possible by four rope tendons that are actuated by hydraulics. The 12 foot long arm is being developed by San Francisco Bay Area art group Survival Research Labs for their robotic performances. Spine Robot was demonstrated at ArtPadSF back in May (video).
