Here’s a smattering of shots from around the lab… eye candy! Titanoboa is really coming along, and the progress so far is amazing.
Titanoboa mockup from Maker Faire. 15 vertebrae and the proto-head. Half the total length.
This is one of Titanoboa's brains. This is going to be one smart snake; electronic brains will be located all along it's spine.
These are the core of each vertebra. Through the centre of each ring will be the nerves of Titanoboa: control lines, power supply, hydraulic lines. It's very similar to the function spinal cord. Biomimcry in action!
First aluminium vertebra!
The first 1/3 order of hydraulic cylinders are in! Each with a 1 ton thrust capacity, these bad boys are 12 inches of sexy snake muscle.
Saddling Up Titanoboa!
Our fearless leader: "Yeehawwwww!"
