Morgui Too Scary For Kids

We had to go back a couple of years to find a robot spooky enough for Halloween and this one, from the UK University of Reading, fits the bill. Morgui (Mandarin for Magic Ghost) was deemed so scary that he was banned by the ethics and research committee from being seen by anyone under the age of 18. The disembodied head has five senses and huge eyes that follow you around the room. Those senses include visual, audio, and radar, infrared, and ultrasonic. Mo, as he is called by his creator Kevin Warwick, was designed to keep an eye on the humans who were watching him. Let us know if you find any scary robots tonight. We suspect that there will be lots of them out there.
