The Spine Robot is a real life Dr. Octopus arm and is powered by hydraulics

Survival Research Labs have come up with a beautiful tool named as “The Spine Robot.” The robot is a tentacle-like robotic arm powered by hydraulics and is made out of four rope tendons. It looks very much like the arm of Dr. Octopus from Spiderman.

The unbelievable flexibility of the arm lets it move to every direction possible. This huge 12 foot long thing was debuted at ArtPadSF. It also holds a grip on the end that can grab things very easily. Basic design of the Spine Robot i.e. the mechanism was inspired by a robot that was used to deactivate bombs in Iraq.
