Machine built to keep humans in check defeated by stairs and fountain in incident where ‘no one was harmed’
The machine uprising has been dealt a serious blow after a robot cop was found face down in a fountain.
Built to autonomously patrol offices and shopping malls, the Knightscope K5 security robot is meant to be able to navigate environments and keep unruly humans in check. Instead, after being deployed to a Washington DC office block, it was found drowned in a watery grave. Much like a Dalek, it appears to have been defeated by stairs.
