Three things certain to give us the jitters - spiders, robots with dubious intentions and death-by-laser.

With that in mind, check out this little beast...

This is the aptly named Death Ray Laser Drone Bot, created by 20-year-old Illinois student, Drake Antony, who posts under the name StyroPyro.

Wow

Anthony has past form with such creations having already made a light-sabre and a laser tornado lamp.

This however, is billed as "my most terrifying creation as of yet".

It's actually a modified toy called an Attacknid that normally fires harmless foam darts against other Attacknids.

Stick a 2W laser diode on its back though and things change. Dramatically.

As you can see from the video, it's capable of bursting balloons and setting fire to sheets of paper - and walking in a most sinister manner.
