A video of the new Spot Mini robot from Boston Dynamics is striking fear in the minds of those who understand how quickly the latest and greatest inventions can turn into our worst nightmares. In the video, the robot can be seen standing in front of a door. Around 12 seconds later, another Spot Mini known as the Big Dog comes around the corner, sporting a robotic claw on its head. The first Spot Mini moves backward, allowing the robotic dog enough space to open the door so the Spot Mini can enter the next room.

While the video does not give a lot of information about the robot’s latest capabilities, an advanced autonomous control system appears to be involved. Even those outlets that are normally enthusiastic about technology are having some reservations about this. For example, TechCrunch’s Brian Heater said: “If the company managed to program Spot Mini to actually open the door on its own in order to help free its friend, well, perhaps it’s time to be concerned.”

Observers quickly took to social media to lament the impending demise of humanity, making comments such as “Our robot overlords can now hunt us in packs” (Twitter user Michael Stackpole) and “Boston Dynamics is going to be the end of us all, and the last remaining humans will be wondering how we didn’t see it coming.” (Twitter user Nick Wright).
