    (hint image didn’t load for me, for some reason)

    iRobot, makers of the Roomba, have made a shape-shifting ChemBot for DARPA. An oozy sub-machine, anyone?

    Chembot –
    It is a palm-sized mobile robot that can traverse soft terrain and navigate through small openings, such as tiny wall cracks, during reconnaissance and search-and-rescue missions.

    iRobot’s JSEL Chembot for DARPA.
    I think they should have called it bladder bot or blob bot.
