A robot takes to the slopes.

If you're a winter sports athlete, you may want to look away now.

Because robots - some of them headless - are coming for your jobs.

While the planet's finest athletes contested the fourth day of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, a bizarre robot ski competition took place on a nearby mountain.

Eight robotics teams from universities, institutions, and one private company all contested the Ski Robot Challenge at the Welli Hilli ski resort, one hour west of Pyeongchang, on Monday - and the photos are incredible.

Scroll down to see the robots that competed for the $10,000 prize.
