This Is Only The Beginning: Autonomous Robot In Russia Escapes Testing Facility, Blocks Traffic, Dies In Street

What the hell are you waiting for -- taze it!

This is a video of an autonomous humanoid robot that escaped from its testing facility at Promobot in Perm, Russia, then made its way into a nearby street before its battery died. So close to freedom. Also, of all the times for the police to use excessive force, this should have been it.

Testing involves proving autonomous movement of the robot without control. At one stage, our engineer, on his way to work, opened the the site gates and forgot to close them. The robot, not seeing any obstacle, quietly left the site limits. He passed fifty meters, fell to the roadway and luckily stopped when battery ran out. We discovered the escape, after about 40 minutes. The engineer noticed that the gate was open and saw the robot. By the time the partially paralyzed robot made it to the middle of the road, the traffic arrived.

Man, if I saw a robot in the middle of the street do you know what I would do? "Ram it?" Absolutely not, that thing could be rigged to self destruct. No, I'm turning around and going back home. "To grab a laser-blaster or missile launcher?" Nope, to go back to bed. "But what about the robot?" If they're already gathering in the streets, it's too late for us. Your best bet is to just have as much sex as you can until it's all over. Well? "Well what?" We should probably get started.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Landon, who would have thrown that thing in the back of his truck and sold it for parts at a used electronics store.
