Titanoboa – Terminator snake

Charlie Brinson and his team, inspired by the story of the real titanoboa decided to create a life-sized electromechanical replica.  Only two-thirds of its body are finished but it’s already an amazing creature. Brinson hopes to refine the control system to allow for more fluid movements like head and tail rearing, and possible fire breathing. In the long run he hopes to make it waterproof and buoyant to make a fully functional 50 foot sea monster.
