Robot servant commits suicide | BoingBoing


curated by | November 18, 2013

A Roomba housecleaning robot committed suicide in Austria. Apparently the iRobot Roomba 760’s owner had put the machine on the counter to clean up spilled cereal.

 

The Robot Launch Pad‘s insight:

I’m probably more concerned that the stove was left on. Once you start leaving the stove on, then any mobile appliance will be toast. :)
