Company Makes Robots That Can Open Doors & We Are Officially Frightened

Boston Dynamics recently introduced us to a robot that can do backflips. Now they can open doors.

A new YouTube video posted by the Waltham robotics company shows a robot using its mechanical arm to turn a handle and open a door. It even kindly holds the door open so its "buddy" can walk through.

One YouTube commenter wrote: "Doors can no longer stop them. We're DOOMED." 

Boston Dynamics didn't immediately release any details along with the video, but it appears to show the company's SpotMini model that is described on its website as "a nimble robot that handles objects, climbs stairs, and will operate in offices, homes and outdoors."

This reminds us of an episode of Black Mirror where robot dogs can hunt and kill people. Serious chills.
