Happy Halloween: These 20 creepy robots are guaranteed to give you the heebie-jeebies
Albert Einstein Hubo
Let's just assume that robots can cross the uncanny valley. KAIST's Hubo robot, with an Albert Einstein face by Hanson Robotics, comes close - but is that supposed to be comforting? It's just one step closer to living among Blade Runner's replicants.
Hirose-Fukushima Robotics Lab's ACM-R5 uses universal joints, bellows, paddles, and passive wheels to slither on land or underwater. I'm not sure what kind of practical uses exist for this mechanical serpent, but it could make a great cameo in an Indiana Jones flick.
