Boston Dynamics scares us again.

The Google-owned company that brought you the big dog robot, which you totally remember as that crazy thing that doesn't fall over when it slips on ice, is back at it again giving us a clearer view of what a possible robot takeover would look like.

They showed some footage of a humanoid robot treading its way through various terrain, including going for a leisurely stroll in the woods.

It doesn't have a head or much in the way of arms, but it does have the capacity to make you feel weird.



In the video, as in everything else they produce, they claim the robots could be used for transportation support through rougher environments, but we can imagine many, many other uses for that future terminator.

My personal favorite of these freaky videos is the time they made the big dog into a cheetah, topping out 28 miles per hour.

A few days after the release of that face melting animated poster, the first official trailer for the new Terminator reboot is here.

And guess which 67-year-old, former governor of California is back as T-800 with his signature catchphrase?

Here's a plot summary from EW's first look at the film back in October:

[The film] is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent's Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor's mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won't ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.

The movie is set to hit theaters July 1, 2015.
