No, this isn’t the terrifying spawn of C3PO and the thing from Virus. According to the YouTube information, this delightful robot baby was constructed for a soap opera by British animatronics expert Chris Clarke, so I suppose we can blame him for bringing this abomination into the world. Perhaps I shouldn’t be so harsh. Besides its metal wire fingers, stubby legs that abruptly end mid-calf, and horrifying face-hole covered only by an array of moving panels, what’s not love? If you think it looks creepy now, just wait until you see it start moving.
