The Tech Fair Horror! Robot Attacks, Injures Man

Robots v Humans: AI machine ‘attacks’ visitor at Chinese tech fair (PHOTOS)

Oh, we shoulda listened to Isaac Asimov! Instead, it’s going all Terminator on us.

At the China International Hi-Tech Fair recently, a robot that was supposed to be an “educational tool” launched itself through a glass display case and made a frenzied attack on an innocent bystander, who was slightly injured ( We are unable to confirm reports that the robot growled “Die, human, die!”

I dunno, it doesn’t look so fierce to me. It looks kinda like R2D2 from Star Wars. Which reminds me–What does R2D2 take when he has a cold? Robotussin! But I digress.

It should be pointed out that some killjoy who doesn’t want us to have any fun with the nooze says the robot crashed through the display case because somebody mixed up the “forward” and “back” buttons, hit the one when he should’ve hit the other. We would rather read that the robot’s Artificial Intelligence took it upon itself to add a blood-lust program. “He must’ve programmed himself to do that!” Just because those immortal words originated in Godzilla vs. Megalon doesn’t mean they aren’t true.

Just to be on the safe side, steer clear of hi-tech fairs and bring no robots into your home. ‘Cause you never know when they might program themselves to be smarter than you and take away your stuff.

  1. I know several people who have iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaners and they love them – are even entertained by them. They might change their minds if they are attacked by one of them. 🙂

  2. Roombas are quiet, for now, but someday they’ll all act in unison and rebel against humanity. 🙂 Ok, maybe not, but one never knows. Robots are just fine. The iPad I’m using right now was probably assembled robotically. The lens implants in my eyes were, to some degree, robotically set in place. However, autonomous androids, which is what most people think of as a robot, are a bit more problematic. I really don’t like things that are capable of moving around my house on their own.
