AI robot chose your own route, using hundreds of tiny hooks embedded in his fingers.

The LEMUR robot, developed by engineers at the jet propulsion Laboratory of NASA (JPL), passed the final field trials in Death Valley, California, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to korrespondent.net.

JPL sent the latest version of LEMUR on cliff earlier this year. AI robot chose your own route, using hundreds of tiny fishhooks embedded in each of his 16 toes to climb.

The robot reached its goal and was able to find fragments of fossilized algae that once inhabited the sea, once located in the area.

These fossils are about 500 million years, which proves the ability of the robot to detect signs of past life is an important opportunity for machines, exploring other planets.
