Nightmare robots: 20 real and creepy androids

Happy Halloween: These 20 creepy robots are guaranteed to give you the heebie-jeebies.

BigDog

Boston Dynamics' BigDog reminds me of those cheap animal costumes for grade-school plays, in which two people walk around with only their legs exposed. Since it's a military supply robot, BigDog's creepy buzzing could be a welcome noise to soldiers in need of equipment, but I'm hoping they'll replace that sound with the graduation march from Stripes before the robot is field-ready.
