South Korea is developing robots that mimic wildlife adapted for all environments on Earth for military warfare.


The nature inspired technology, known as biomimetics, will form part of the country's future weapons systems and help its soldiers in battles.  

Robot designs inspired by birds, snakes and marine species aim to cover both surveillance and combat via sea, land and sky. 

It is an attempt to catch up with neighbouring countries such as China and Russia who have made huge advances in the application of the technology, said a defence agency personnel. 

In a document that described the country's key defence technologies, South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) says it would actively apply the biomimetics to the military's future weapons systems.

The plan is to develop several kinds of biobots which replicate humans and wildlife, mimicking birds, snakes, marine species and even insects for the hardest to reach areas. 

DAPA agency spokesman Park Jeong-eun said: 'Biometric robots will be a game changer in future warfare, and related technologies are expected to bring about great ripple effects throughout the defense industry.'
