Snake Robots for mine rescue

Snake Bots

You may not love snakes, but you'd be happy to see one of these snake robots if you were trapped in a collapsed building. Check out the snakebots in this episode of Innovation Nation with Miles O'Brien.

And this would equally apply to an underground mining emergency, or even a new wa of mining very thin seams of ore!
Also note my earlier post on mine rescue potential of robots.
