Are you tired of electrically stimulating your scorpion by hand? Me too. Have no fear, because in the 21st century we have now ushered in the age of robotic scorpion milkers. Mr Mkamel and the team created the VES-4 device to be a lightweight and easily portable robot for researchers both in the lab or the field. "It is designed to extract scorpion venom without harming the animal and to provide more safety for the experimenters," explains Mr Mkamel. I did not even know that scorpions had udders. Whodathunkit?
