A YouTube star inspired the creation of a massive 8-foot, knife-wielding, robotic chef. 

Watch a video of the giant mech easily slicing through some household foods before crushing the refrigerator that would have housed them.

MegaBots, a robotics group with a goal of creating their own robot-fighting sport, were inspired to build the machine by YouTube star and inventor Simone Giertz, who created a similar (but much smaller) chopping machine back in 2015.

Check out the video of her nonchalantly reading the newspaper as the killer chopping machine sitting next to her cuts up carrots into finger bite-sized pieces.
