In the first-ever case of a ‘robot suicide’, a house robot sick of its "boring cleaning job" has ended its life by climbing onto a kitchen hotplate and destroying itself in a fire. The android in an Austrian household had to clean up some cereal when it climbed onto a kitchen hotplate and destroyed itself.
It had grown "tired" of being forced to clean the same house every day, as per reports in Austria. Though it was not on active mode, somehow it re-activated itself and made its way along the work surface where it pushed a cooking pot out of the way and basically that was the end of it. It quickly started melting underneath and then stuck to the kitchen hotplate and caught fire. .
It’s a mystery how it came to be activated and ended up on the hotplate but the owner palns to sue the company that had made it.
