Oh my goodness!
technology, robots, toys, doll news
Nope. Shut it down.
@vanillawaif "Yar, that's going to replace the whale in my nightmares."
NUKE IT FROM SPACE.
@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Is there any way I can make sure it doesn't run the program where this thing breaks every single thing I love and destroys my house with crayons and applesauce?
@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher KILL IT WITH FIRE.
@parallel-lines Yes NUKE IT FROM SPACE. WITH FIRE.
@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher NUKE IT WITH SPACE-FIRE FROM SPACE.
SHOOT IT TO THE SUN.
I'm sorry, Mom. I'm afraid I can't do that.
I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
This mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
@atipofthehat NOOOOT HEEEELPIIIINNNNGGG
Look, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over.
Is this what my extra-lucky Year of the Dragon baby is going to look like?
Im trying to figure out if, you know, putting muscles and skin and eyelashes on it would make it more or less scary.
@pastina MORE. Way more.
@pastina Oh my god imagine it with JUST EYELASHES
@ruth_j Robotics should never have eyelashes.
I had the extreme displeasure of viewing the movie "Shoot 'Em Up" this weekend and (I'd call this a spoiler alert but you should never watch this movie ever) and there was a scene with a horrible robot baby in a backpack that Paul Giamatti runs over with a car. This is somehow worse.
One day, that baby will grow up.
@atipofthehat If my robot baby ever murders anyone with a carrot I will know I am a failure at computerparenting.
@atipofthehat Now I actually kind of want to watch that? Possibly due to having imprinted on Yul Brynner at an early age due to The King & I?
It's the Terminator 11 years before the the Terminator!
@atipofthehat Perfect. A movie I can have fun watching and use to act superior.
I think it was George Santayana who said, "Those who do not learn from the Terminator movies are condemned to death by assassin robots from the future." Maybe I'm misquoting a bit.
Where is the "nightmares" tag? "Projectile vomit?" "oh god make it stop?"
The most disturbing thing is its lack of feet. Where are its feet?
@Emby It gnawed them off.
She is Babe,
Eager for fun.
She wears a smile—
@vanillawaif bona fide NOPE. definite shut it down. those leg-operating pinball flippers in the lower abdomen!!
Babies don't have feet.
I hear they're working on a TODDLER.
@atipofthehat Shut that down too.
Voldemort! He lives!
I don't even need to see that move to know it is the freakiest damn thing ever.
So, whenever I look at a real baby in the future, I'm only going to be seeing this thing. Flailing. On the floor. With no feet. What I'm saying here is that it has ruined real babies for me.
@wharrgarbl Don't pin this on the robot; real babies ruined it for themselves with their crying and smelling and general helplessness.
@wharrgarbl If only this would replace the images from the first "Alien" movie I get when I see pregnant women. I have PTSD from that movie.
@Myrtle Okay, the mental picture of this thing coiled up in some poor unsuspecting lady's uterus like a normal fetus is even worse than the mental image of it superimposed over a real baby. Ugh.
There are worse things out there.
Hides under desk
@atipofthehat Thailand might be one of those countries with a tradition of post-mortem marriages, though, so that seems slightly less horrible than the flailing baby skeleton that only wants you to love it, mommy, why won't you love it.
Needs more writhing.
Just like a real baby, if real babies could scream "I SHOULDN'T BE ALIVE."
Just adorable soundless screams from its fleshless metal lips.
Oh no. Ohnohnoohno. That was not what I needed to start my day. It looks like it's drowning!
@ms. alex Don't be silly. It just wants you to pick it up and hold it. Maybe it will curl its cold little metal bones around your finger once it's calmed down a little.
@wharrgarbl And what if it calls me "mama"?
@ms. alex I'm not going to lie here. If that happens, it's probably going to try to breastfeed within a minute or two. It's up to you whether you want to pop a jug of motor oil in your bra and keep bonding or hurl it to the ground and hit it repeatedly with a fire extinguisher at that point.
@wharrgarbl Maybe if I pass it off quickly it won't notice.
I'm....pretty sure that's Gir. Minus eyes.
@FloraPosteHaste my gir plushie has never looked so ominous...
Thanks a lot for the nightmares, Edith!
@unicornparty what you said, exactly. This would've been a great halloween post!
See you and your needle-fingers in my nightmares, you footless little abomination you.
I do not like that thing. I do not like that thing AT ALL.
I can't work up the nerve to watch it. Just from the still image, I'm gonna say this skips right past Uncanny Valley and stops in the Canyon of Unholy Terror.
@comedy_of_customs I honestly can't bring myself to watch it. I feel like shivering and nervously giggling to myself in my cubicle is not the best way to begin the work week.
@comedy_of_customs And you show wisdom beyond your years. #eyeterrors
@comedy_of_customs: BUT! One of the related videos that pops up after the end is of animatronic rodents and hamsters that is very cool.
@Too Much Internet Is this it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AK-dLhf7P-g&feature=related (I read how to make links in Hairpin comments once, but then I forgot.)
Also, wtfbbq humping animatronic hamsters.
OMG, it's a Cylon baby. They have a plan.
@notwhouthought The Cylons were created by humans!
No thanks, science. No thanks for this one.
File under: Things I Am Not Over
I am torn between wanting to pick it up and soothe it or throw it to the ground and stomp it. My maternal urges and my fear of dolls are dueling fiercely in my head.
the creepiest part about this for me is the heavy and labored breathing of whoever is doing the filming, dude needs to calm down
The way I feel when I look at that creepy baby is only one exclamation point different from the way I feel when I look at people's real babies when they shove them at me and try to make me hold them even after I tell them I don't want to hold their baby, no thank you, I have a cold and no maternal instincts whatsoever. Which is: eeeeeyuck!!!
How is animatronic babby formed?
My baby seems so smart but also I'm worried my baby is coming for me.
EDITH ZIMMERMAN. NO. I am already reading Dracula at night before bed and that is giving me nightmares enough, I do not need a zombie robot baby skeleton in my brain too!
It looks like it's having a roborgasm.eeeaaauuugh.
Oh my god I want to kill it
