Dr Mumbo

Russia’s new bold, killer robot, as revealed by the Herald Sun

Killer robots are Dr Mumbo’s least favourite kind of robots. Personally, he prefers the kind that creep around your house vacuuming – occasionally running into bar stools in the kitchen and alarming house pets everywhere.

Despite his disdain for robots of the death variety, Dr Mumbo couldn’t help but read about Russia’s “new bold, killer robot” as the Herald Sun teased “It doesn’t look how you’d expect it to look”. Indeed, thought Dr Mumbo, it looks a lot like recently re-appointed president of Russia, Vladimir Putin.

In its Tweet about the death robots – which incidentally actually look like this…

… the publication instead used an image of Putin at his inauguration ceremony at the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow.

Dr Mumbo was intrigued to discover that death robots do indeed not look how he’d expect them to look – but also notes they look distinctly different from the divisive long-term Russian leader.

Dr Mumbo sincerely hopes he never meets killer robots – no matter how bold, and regardless of what they look like.
