It’s like the worst Terminator-inspired nightmare come to life: A robot baby with no skin, that moves and sounds just like a real child.

Created by special effects master Chris Clarke, who’s worked on films such as Alien vs. Predator, Resident Evil and even the recent Steven Spielberg epic War Horse, the freakish robo-baby was designed for a soap opera.

To see what one of Clarke’s complete robo-babies looks like, check out this video from a 2008 ad campaign.
