Asimov’s First Law: Exploring the implications | FUTURESTATES.tv via The Verge

“Isaac Asimov’s first law of robotics states, “A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.” However, injury mostly corresponds to physical harm, not mental or emotional harm. Sleep Dealer director Alex Rivera plays with human emotions in his latest short film A Robot Walks Into a Bar.”

John Payne‘s insight:

FUTURESTATES isn’t your typical website; I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t work at all in older browsers. Once it appears, click on the "Continue" button, then on the menu icon (three stacked horizontal bars), then on the video title, then on the triangular images that zooms into the foreground.
