Creepy robot dog patrolling streets at freaks out Canadians
A robot dog patrolling a street at night freaked out Twitter.
The mechanical canine, named Spot by maker Boston Dynamics, got the attention of @bloodtear with his weird walk down a sidewalk in northern Ontario, Canada.
The Canadian user posted a video of the pooch on the prowl: Guys! Look who I saw out on da street!!”
Twitterers went wild. So far, the post has had over 90,000 likes and 15,000 comments.
One reply came from @alucardsgf, who wrote: this is so genuinely terrifying i would seriously kick this out of fear.”
Another, @jriuzzell, tweeted: Everyone needs to watch the Black Mirror episode “Heavy Metal”…this s–t is terrifying.”
The hardwired hound, which can run, jump and open locked doors, sells for $75,000. Right now, Spot is patrolling a farm in New Zealand and a handful of others are enforcing social distancing in Singapore and other tourist hot spots.
