Gastropods - A silly Idea ??

Just about every method of locomotion in the animal world has been mimicked in robotics. I've seen Fish, hexapods, ornithopters, octopods, synthetic trunks and tentacles, bipeds, even monopods, tripods, milipedes, frogs and snakes

Yet for reasons that I guess in the main are obvious, (but when did obvious inutility ever stop us !) One entire taxonomic group has been missed out of the "robots mimicking nature stakes", and not a minor one either!
