CMU Snake Robots Can Now Strangle Things on Contact

As far as the robot is concerned, I imagine that your neck probably makes for a perfectly acceptable vantage point from which to survey an area, at least until you pass out and fall over.

Using the accelerometers inside each module of the snake robot we are able to detect when the robot hits a pole or branch after being thrown and have the robot automatically perch on contact.

Incidentally, robotic snakes totally stole the fly n' grab trick from real snakes, some of whom launch themselves from trees and glide to other trees, grabbing on with their bodies on impact.

Father builds guillotine and chops off his own hand in bid to end years of agony after accident left him in pain but doctors did not help...and it still hurts

motorcycle crash victim has amputated his injured hand with a homemade guillotine to end 16 years of unbearable pain only to find his arm still hurts.

The father-of-one took a fortnight to build the guillotine using an axe, some springs and an old gate post, which took his left hand off ten days ago.

The unemployed former garage owner, who is right handed, says his severe pain began after a 1998 motorbike accident left him with nerve damage.

'So It took it off myself and now there is no reason why the can't operate.' When he sliced it off his horrified wife Samantha came home ten minutes later and found her husband had tossed the severed limb onto a fire in the garden.

He takes 40 painkillers a day but wants a device called a spinal stimulator implanted into his back to ease his pain.

Mr Goddard insist he has undergone three psychiatric evaluations and passed all of them and police admitted that he was still 'rational' after his amputation.

He also says he barely felt anything as his homemade guillotine came down because he used a weight strapped to it to ensure it had enough force to amputate his hand.

'She called the emergency services and the police and ambulance turned up.' The former garage owner had suffered excruciating nerve pain since he was in a motorbike accident when he was 28 years old.

He was riding through London when a car came speeding around a corner and knocked him off, cracking a vertebrae in his neck, damaging his spine and shattering his clavicle.

Mark added: 'I've been experiencing chronic pain ever since my accident but they refused to amputate because my hand is still useful 'I've explained to doctors, psychologists and specialists that if this pain isn't stopped I would remove the limb myself.

Mark's wife Samantha, 43, who has supported his efforts to have his arm surgically removed, told The Sun: ' I knew he was up to something that day, but I thought he was planning a secret treat as a surprise.
