When I first saw this: This can’t be real, right? Or is giving robots a slouch and leg counterweights the engineering solution that seals our fate in the robot uprising?

However, to our very amazement, the creepy humanoid robot is actually not real. Well, surprisingly, the robot was created using computer-generated graphics. Renowned South African Director Neil Blomkamp who is popular for science fiction films like Chappie and District 9 revealed the truth behind the walking humanoid robot.
Blomkamp took it to his Twitter account and blew the lid off the rumors of the reality behind the robot. In his tweet, he mentioned that the robot video is part of a mini-series names ‘Adam’:
“Although no one would welcome a robot uprising more than I, – It’s actually part of this series.”
Take a look at his tweet:

It’s sad to know that this humanoid robot is just a CGI effect. But how cool would that be when robots would walk around us freely like in the video! What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
