Kitchen Robot Suicides!

4 posts in this topic

"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."

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.
