We’ve called them robot dogs, but we actually don’t really know what these infernal machines are meant to resemble – dinosaurs from hell might be more accurate.
Boston Dynamics is the company which has been developing a wide range of canines and humanoids which are widely regarded as the scariest robots ever made outside of science fiction.
The reason why so many people have been left mentally disturbed by seeing Boston Dynamics robots is because they move in such realistic ways that you think that’s only a matter of time before they take over the world and possibly enslave everyone – or worse.
The robot Boston Dynamics plans to launch is called SpotMini (main picture), which, as the name suggests, is one of its smaller canine robots.
This may be because some of its larger robots are “truly terrifying”, according to Inverse.
The company does, however, have plans to unleash its other nightmare-inducing robots sometime after the launch of SpotMini.
