Security Robot Found Drowned in An Indoor Fountain


We have heard about robots equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI) but what kind of robot drowns itself into a fountain?

A suicidal robot?

That’s something new.

Well, on 17th July, people inside a Washington, DC office building witnessed a Knightscope security robot face-planted inside an indoor fountain of the building.

It’s funny since The Washington Harbour wrote in a Facebook post before the incident took place that “There’s a new sheriff in town,” referring to the security robot who drowned itself the very next day into the fountain.

Reportedly, the robot “sheriff,” belonging to K5 model was patrolling the Washington Harbor complex in DC before it was found face-planted inside the indoor fountain of the building.

The picture of the drowned robot was originally shared by Bilal Farooqui who works in the same building.

According to his tweet:

“Our D.C. office building got a security robot.

It drowned itself. We were promised flying cars. Instead, we got suicidal robots.”

However, this is not the first time when a Knightscope’s robot was in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Last year, a 5-foot-tall and 300-pound Knightscope security robot at the Stanford Shopping Center, California knocked down a 16-month-old boy and ran him over.
