Three BostonDynamics creations straight out of a sci-fi thriller

BostonDynamics recently uploaded some more videos of their robotic creations, and all I can say is scary.

There is something about these real robots that just feels uncanny. 

On top of that, they seem to be getting smarter and smarter.

I really do hope that they are being kinder to these robots than they used to be. 

If you ask me this all seems to be a robot uprising in the making, I know I’ll be on team cyborg when that time comes.

You can watch the videos here:

Perhaps one of the scariest creations I have ever seen.
