THE REVOLUTION IS COMING!
Last year, (1999
) at least 5 people were killed by robots.
Seriously. One of them was a guy named Kenji Urada
. He worked at a Kawasaki
factory. The robot was malfunctioning, and Kenji bypassed a protective rope and accidently hit the On switch
On a related note
, scientists at Brandeis University announced this August that they made self-replicating robots
. They were little crablike plastic things
