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.
