Have A Skynet Christmas With These Terrifying Robotic Reindeer

bill-swift - December 25, 2015

People talk about there being a war on Christmas. This is nonsense. The only war that matters is the coming war between the humans and the machines. I'm talking of the moment when the world's robotics and computer systems become sentient and begin exterminating us like so many cockroaches in a Raid commercial. I keep warning people, especially sciencey types, to cut it out with the making creepy robots thing. But no one listens to me. Now they've even started to intrude on our cherished Christmas traditions. Boston Dynamics, a robotics company owned by Google, has created the most terrifying robotic reindeer. They are seriously nightmare inducing. They prance around looking simultaneously like the Terminator when he loses his skin and a dog that needs to poop really bad. 

When will we learn that it is best to leave nature alone and not try and play God with parts from Radio Shack? I guess it will take robo-Blitzen crushing our collective skulls with his iron hooves to teach us the lesson.
