3 Laws of Robotics poster (coming soon).

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

- Isaac Asimov, Handbook of Robotics, 56th Edition, 2058 A.D.

  1. The first person killed by a robot was in Japan. They jumped over the fence rather than opening the fence door (that shuts the robot down). The were smashed against a wall and killed.

    The Zeroth law of Robots is that all robot manuals must be translated into Japanese.
