A new Black Mirror episode has cast a chilling outlook on the rise of robotic companions like Boston Dynamics’ nimble mechanical ‘dogs.’

Boston Dynamics’ videos chronicling the dogs’ progression have risen to viral fame – but, despite their popularity and incredible abilities, some people, including the show’s creators, have noticed something unnerving about the robo-dogs.

In a new episode titled ‘Metalhead’ from the just-released fourth season, Black Mirror explores what could happen if these machines turned on us, revealing the terrifying quest for survival in a world where robo-dogs can outrun and outsmart humans.

A captivating trailer from the latest season shows a glimpse into the black-and-white episode released on Netflix today.

In the clip, a woman can be seen talking to someone on a walkie-talkie, before moving through shots of a warehouse, what appears to be a ghastly murder scene, and an unsettling view over an open field – where a fast-moving robotic animal tears through grass toward an unseen destination.

‘I can’t talk for long,’ the woman says in the video.

‘We found a dog at the warehouse. I’ve lost it for now.

‘But my guess is its still operational. If I don’t make it back, I’ve always loved you all.’

For viewers, the appearance of the human-hunting robo-dogs may feel shockingly close to home.

And, according to the creators, that’s no accident.

The episode came about ‘from watching Boston Dynamics videos,’ but crossed with the film All Is Lost, Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker told EW.

‘And with those videos, there’s something very creepy watching them where they get knocked over, and the look sort of pathetic laying there, but then they slowly manage to get back up.’
