Continuing my coverage of important robotic matters…
About a week ago Skynet began the first of its clandestine missions to subvert the human race and dominate us all… by messing up a medication delivery routine.
A delivery robot named Waldo (some things about robots haven’t changed since the 80’s I see) went “berserk” in a San Franciso hospital:
“Waldo shot past the pharmacy and barged uninvited into the examination room in the radiation oncology department, where — according to an anonymous caller — a doctor was examining a cancer patient,” the paper’s columnists wrote. “According to the caller, Waldo wouldn’t leave, and the startled doctor and patient felt obliged to flee the room.”
That’s it. No more info. I for one would like to know exactly how a robot refuses to leave a room and more importantly why two grown human beings would feel compelled to “flee”.
