Today's scary robot comes from Britain. Sporting the delightful name Mor Gui (Magic Ghost!), it apparently scares the heck of people. So creepily does this Terminator-look-alike cross the uncanny valley that kids are warned away:
Professor Kevin Warwick of the University's Cybernetics Department said "We want to investigate how people react when they first encounter 'Mo', as we lovingly like to call the robot. Through one of Mo's eyes he can watch peoples' responses to him following them around. It appears this is not deemed to be acceptable for Under 18 year olds without prior consent from their legal guardian. This presents us with a big problem as we cannot demonstrate Mo in action either to visitors or potential students. In fact the whole of our robotics lab is now officially a no-go area for non-adults".
One look at Mr. Gui could be enough.
