YouTuber Allen Pan set out to give legs to the notoriously legless snake. Fun video that is mostly tongue in cheek and a little nsfw. After learning a thing or two Pan does successfully make a set of legs!
Pan has a few false starts with the project, thankfully using a stuffed animal snake to try out the prototypes. And even though I’m not afraid of snakes, the idea of one with spider legs is horrifying. The final design is much less creepy. It uses a series of programmable servos and a wireless controller that looks like a car key fob
