Boston Dynamics made a robot dog, similar to the murderous one of Black Mirror

I'm not sure if you have seen the last season of Black Mirror, and to be more specific: episode 5, Metalhead. But after seeing this video earlier this week of Boston Dynamics their latest creation I think I almost pooped my pants!

Being a hobbyist and creating small robots myself I'm always super excited by new technology, robots and electronics in general. But the creations by Boston Dynamics always seemed somewhat weird.

Last month I binge-watched Black Mirror season 4 together with my girlfriend, and one of the more scary episodes to me was the one called Metalhead. Not going to spoil too much, but basically: it contains murderous robot dogs. Below a short scene of this particular episode.

Do you see the similarities? I was honestly stressed out after watching the Boston Dynamics video. THIS IS THE END PEOPLE 🌍💥!

No, not really. But still, excited & little bit scared for the future 🤖🔪!
