The Daleks are Coming for Real

You thought it was just science fiction. Oh, another Dalek. The Doctor can handle it and it will all be over in an hour. Wrong! It looks like the first Dalek prototype is upon us in the real world.

Engineers from China’s National Defense University created this robot for security policing purposes. It looks familiar no? They call it “AnBot,” but it sure reminds me of a Dalek. All it needs is an eyestalk, a manipulator arm and gun. Sure it doesn’t look threatening right now – until they program it to say “EXTERMINATE!”. Then maybe people will pay attention and stop this terrible apocalypse before it is too late.

Where is the Doctor when we need him? Somebody call U.N.I.T. at least!
