The robot takeover may be nearer than we think.
Secretive robotics firm Boston Dynamics has posted a new video showing off its creepy SpotMini robo-canine, where he can be seen opening a door all on his own.
In the 45-second video, titled ‘Hey Buddy, Can You Give Me a Hand?’ a SpotMini walks over to a door before realizing it can’t get through.
Another SpotMini quickly comes to his rescue and extends his (somewhat terrifying) clawed arm, which he uses to grab the door handle.
The SpotMini is seen holding open the door as his fellow robo-dog friend then casually walks through the door.
The terrifying video has led one commentator to write on YouTube: “Doors can no longer stop them, we’re doomed.’
