"Firemen were called to a house fire that broke out after a mechanical cleaning gadget somehow switched itself on and destroyed itself by moving onto a kitchen hotplate.
Local media in Austria have referred to the incident as 'robot suicide' and even suggested it was fed up with the constant cleaning it had to do."

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Hmmm, I think I smell fraud with the melted plastic fumes. The guy takes a floor vacuum, uses it on his countertop, then leaves the house with the stove on? If nothing else, I would have to imagine his plans to sue might fall flat since he wasn't really using the device properly.
