These Viral Photos Took The World By Storm Until They Were Proven To Be Fakes

A 14-second video appeared online showing a slowly walking human-like robot that shook the social media world and even had celebrities in fear. This video led to the rise of ‘robophobia’ which actually isn’t a real thing and something else that isn’t real, is the robot in the video.
Walking humanoid robot reality
This was just short test footage from filmmaker Neill Blomkamp for his TV series called “Adam”. Another fact of the matter is that the robot was actually CGI. The actual engine that was used to create this robot is used to create some stunning visual effects as well as video games and is called ‘Unity’.
On first glance, anyone would believe this to be a real image as it looks so realistic. The editing work on this image is really good and will make anyone believe that this is a real Boeing 727 in the middle of a dense forest. But, sadly this image is a fake.
This image was created by photographer Demas Rusli and was posted online in August of 2018. He did admit editing the image to give him the shock value he wanted. The real plane’s image was taken while it was in a fenced area in Bali. Also after further inspection, you can see some parts of the image were used to clone other parts as marked in the circles.
