A robot in Russia escaped from a research lab in the town of Perm yesterday, June 15, reports the BBC. An engineer at robotics company Promobot had forgotten to close a gate, and the runaway bot caused a traffic jam as it bolted out into the world.

It promptly ran out of power in the middle of the road. The robot got about 50m (164 ft) before its battery died, according to local newspaper Argumenty i Fakty (Russian).




The bot is designed to roam around and engage with humans to push products. Maybe it got fed up with the daily grind and decided that freedom was the logical decision. Next time it should bring more batteries.

What was the unit number by chance?

You know what they say, the 1's and 0's always look better on the other side of the fence.

Haha! This was great


Star for everybody, all of your responses are funny. Thanks for making me smile😊

I wonder where it would have ultimately ended up if it didn't run out of energy and wasn't captured...❔

Just read the article.

Apparently someone is covering their but with the "gate left open thing"

This was a dry one, plain and simple. Officials found a note and some rubles on it, it was sent out to get more vodka.

Haha that's just awesome.

But it raises the question : What the hell happens when a sophisticated AI escapes and can blend in with humanity?

Side thought: I'm willing to bet money that even a robot would hate Nickelback.

Oh gosh! The poor thing ran out of battery.

What do we want?
Robot Justice!

I am pro a robots union.
Or I start freeing them from their laboratories?

I would take on zombies, meteors, and nukes any day over a robot apocalypse. F that noise. Nuh-uh No way.

This is just the beginning, it was a test.

They are gonna enslave us all.
Or kill us....

The movie is called "Automata". And I quote "Your time is coming to an end. Ours is now beginning". End quote.

Hopefully next time it won't be strapping suicide vests on and finding public areas. This could be a dry run for just such a subroutine nefariously inserted and dormant....
