Merging Hexapod Bots And Flying Quadrotors Is Humanity's Biggest Mistake

The world might not have ended yesterday, but humanity has officially started the countdown clock to our demise with this ill-fated creation. As if six-legged crawling hexapod bots weren’t already creepy enough, the folks at Mad Lab Industries decided they needed the ability to fly. So they merged one with a six rotor quadcopter.

Great. Now we get to spend a second sleepless night worrying about the end of our species.

The conversion wasn’t as easy as just taping both bots together. The hexapod had to be considerably lightened and overhauled with a body made from carbon fibre instead of ABS plastic. But sadly this modern Frankenstein was a complete success, ensuring that no obstacle will stop artificial intelligences from one day wiping us all out.
