Anyone who’s watched the latest season of Black Mirror knows that robot dogs are a bad idea. Vengeful murderous robot dogs? Even worse. Yet here we are.
A robotics company in Japan has created a real-life terrifying version of the robot dog from the ‘Metalhead’ episode – except scarier somehow.
The ‘Super Monster Wolf’ (great name by the way) is a 65cm-long, 50cm tall robot dog, designed to keep wild boar away from rice and chestnut crops. Somehow we’re all supposed to trust that thing will do that and only that and not eventually turn on mankind destroying us all. Cool cool cool.
Instead of Black Mirror being a warning of the future that could be, it seems to just be funneling terrible ideas into our current world.
