Not quite Angel's robotic snake, but pleasing

video

In Dreams of the Machines (Time Rats Book 2) Angel the android makes a robotic snake. The offspring, in a nod to my book, got me this remote control serpent for Christmas.

I'm very pleased with it.

    1. It is indeed awesomely cool, FH. My daughter is good at getting me strange yet satisfying presents.

  2. Amazing!

    I hope you don't have a cat, though mine would have run away.

    1. I think cats might like it, so I looked on Youtube. This cat seems cautiously interested, though the snake isn't being operated very well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8wlfciWcBs

  3. We have too many of the real things to mess with a robotic one :)

    1. I'm afraid Islington, where I live, is totally lacking in snakes. I'd get really excited if I saw one in the wild. (I've just had a thought and checked Google - apparently grass snakes are thriving on Hampstead Heath. Next summer I must go and see if I can find any.)

    1. I've sprayed the snake silver now, and it does look rather ace...
