If you hade the time and money, how would you construct the scariest robot possible?
I think I'd go for a sugary cute doll robot, stuffed with hidden evil electronics :) Using a tiny camera and face regognition, the robot would wait idly until there's only one person nearby and then slowly turn it's head and eyes to look at him/her. Unless it turned out too cheesy the robot would also say stuff like "seven days" (and because of the face regognition it could maintain individual counters for it's victims) or just laugh diabolically.
It would need some servos so it could move about at night, but nothing advanced like biped walking. Just enough to crawl a meter or turn around so that every now and then you'd find it somewhere else in the morning.
Well, yes, I'm bored and trying to find excuses for not studying..
