WATCH: Meet the robot that mimics breathing, blinking, and staring

This might just be the most terrifying and creepy thing you will see today.

Creepy Disney Robot

Many decades ago, robots were a far distant dream.

With that came a lot of panic that if robots and artificial intelligence ever develop enough, they might destroy the human race.

Based on that, we have some of the greatest movies of all time, like 'The Matrix' and 'The Terminator'.

Although we should remember that it is all fiction.

Just like the people who continue to work on their innovative and futuristic creations every day.

The people at Disney did just that and would now like to introduce you to Gaze.

Based on looks, this might be the robot of your nightmares, but other than that, it is completely harmless.

You can see Gaze in action right here:

The interactive robot has been created by the engineers at Walt Disney Engineering, as part of the Disney Research division, who have teamed up with the robotics researchers from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and the California Institute of Technology.

The robot was given very realistic human eye traits and can mimic a human's eyes by looking around the room, staring, and blinking.

Now, why would they call it Gaze? Because the aim of this work is to develop a system that will match a human-like mutual gaze.

Disney is currently working on many different technologies in robotics, AI, and machine learning.

But we just hope they'll focus on Gaze's face for a second because this skinless situation is not for us just yet.
