Creepy Robot of the Day

Boston Dynamics unveiled their latest creepy robot yesterday which has been codenamed "Spot."

The smaller, more agile Spot is capable of moving at a faster pace than the previously-seen Big Dog, which is good because it will need the extra speed to leap through your living-room window.

The truth is I'm not actually creeped out by robots. In fact, I feel bad for the robot when they kick it to test its stability.

Boston Dynamics was purchased by Google in 2013.

    Nice for exploring Mars, but I don’t think I would want one in the house.

    No, them fuckin things are creepy. They look like headless dogs walking around. I wonder if they have booties for them to wear in the snow…
