MUST SEE: Neighborhood Terrified as Robot Dog Roams the Streets; Some Threaten to Shoot It

What a wild, dystopian world we’re building for ourselves. 

As we enter ever deeper into this digital/technological revolution, our civilization will soon be faced with some strange new scenes playing out before us.

We already use our thumbs and faces to unlock our telephones, and we can talk to our cars and television remotes like we’re living in some depressing episode of The Jetsons.  Things are already just a little bit weird, and the Orwellian nightmare is sure to escalate in the coming years.

For instance, in Canada, citizens are reeling after spotting a robot dog sauntering the streets on its own.

Video of a Boston Dynamics Spot robot dog apparently wandering a city street on its own has struck terror into the hearts of social media users — though some defended the ‘bot, pointing out humans can hurt each other without help.

A Canadian Twitter user posted video of the four-legged yellow robot ambling down the sidewalk on Thursday, though it’s not clear where it was actually filmed. The person taking the footage, though initially startled, opts for a friendly approach, addressing the quadruped with “Hello friend!”

Boston Dynamics’ robot dogs have been deployed in Singapore to enforce social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic, and some US police departments have acquired their own, causing consternation among civil liberties groups. However, the four-legged model has been available to the public since June for anyone with $74,500 to buy one, meaning this particular Spot might have belonged to a private citizen.

Some citizens were incensed that the robot was simply wandering about, claiming that they would shoot it “on sight” should they come into contact with the futuristic Fido.

Video of the incident was soon circulating on social media.

What a wild, dystopian world we’re building for ourselves.
