When your children ask you how the great robot rebellion of 2035 began you can say it all started when they messed up someone’s hamburger by adding too much ketchup. Bad robot! Mechanised, automated and chock full of sensors with a dash of AI programming, these robots are sick of being ordered about and just flip out. These video clips are proof that delegating menial tasks is by no means safe; rubbish is scattered to the wind, doors are busted open and a robot hand given the task of feeding a (fake, foam) person full on smacks its cheeks off with a fistful of Doritos.
