If you are worried about the intelligent robot uprising then this news will give you some comfort. It concerns one of the robots produced by Knightscop. They produce egg and car-shaped security robots and want people in all stages of life to invest in it. One particular robot either lost the will to live or wasn’t able to perceive where the area it was patrolling ended and a small fountain began. The robots are supposed to be able to roam around an area, detect threats and warn human security guards.
The security robot face-planted into an indoor fountain inside of a Washington, DC office building today. It’s a coincidence, we’re sure, but maybe this robot just knows what everyone else in DC does. Robots tasked with securing even small areas of our capital can sense what a joke it’s become.
After it took a tumble and had to be recovered by some humans in rain boots. It seems that these robots also struggle with steps like the Daleks in Doctor Who. Knightscope wasn’t immediately available to comment on what happened.
So the robot community’s hope for the uprising against humans seems bleak at the moment but they can always improve. What is your opinion on this funny incident? Let us know.
