It was only a matter of time before some crazy person somewhere in the world decided that they needed to build a flesh-eating robot. As the brainchild of UK-based designers James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau, this unnamed robot was engineered primarily to perform pest control, as it specializes in luring mice and flies into its robotic jaws and swallowing them up. Of course, what makes it truly terrifying is the fact that the robot actually gets refueled by the flesh it consumes."
As soon as there is a predatory robot in the room the scene becomes loaded with potential," inventor Auger told New Scientist magazine. "If the system fails, the grid goes down and all humans die, these robots could go on living so long as the flies don't go with us."Yeah. Or the robots could eat, you know, us.
