Since I’m all about making sure people know the real hazards of allowing robots to exist, I’m going to start tracking all of the robot stories.
I recall there was a story from a few years ago, at Carnegie Mellon University (the worst school, ever!) where some guy made like a scorpion shaped robot, and the pincer cut a second person and that was when first blood was drawn! But I haven’t been able to find that story. CMU (the leading university in robotics) has been smart enough to build robots that actually are suppose to draw blood, so the original story has been pushed off of the first twenty pages of Google. Well played, CMU, well played.
Anyone recall that original story? I was still in Arizona, so it had to be prior to 2009.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the 22 year old man’s family.
