This thing is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are creeped out.

The beginning of the end for mankind is actually named Spot, and it was created by the mad scientists at Boston Dynamics:

Spot is a four-legged robot designed for indoor and outdoor operation. It is electrically powered and hydraulically actuated. Spot has a sensor head that helps it navigate and negotiate rough terrain. Spot weighs about 160 lbs.

See Spot kill. Kill, Spot, kill. No one will ever kick Spot again.

Getting the thing to go up and down stairs was the tough part. We all remember what happened to the ED-209. Now this adorable little fella can tiptoe up your stairs anytime it wants and LOOK OUT, IT’S RIGHT BEHIND YOU!!!

Just kidding.

For now.
