Hard Pass On The Guardbot Surveillance Robot. Hard. Pass.

It’s a spherical, amphibious robot for security and surveillance called Guardbot, but to us it just looks like the scariest Black Mirror episode imaginable.

It can roll on any terrain and even swim and we’d like to get excited about all the safety possibilities, but really it’s hard to think about Guardbot without picturing being chased by this unstoppable machine once they’ve turned on the human race.

The robot is currently being tested by the military and ranges in sizes, starting at about 5 inches to squeeze into small spaces and going up to 7 feet. It can chase you — or roll to it’s destination — at 9 miles per hour.
