First Stephen Hawking tells us that coming into contact with aliens might spell mankind’s doom, and now the Germans are claiming that robotic domestic helpers may slice-and-dice us.

From a BBC report:

German researchers studied what happens in accidents involving robots using sharp tools alongside humans.

. . .

The robot arm was programmed to use the bladed tools to stab and cut a silicone lump, a leg from a dead pig and the arm of a human volunteer.

Can you guess how this ends?

Thankfully, no humans were harmed during the course of this study.
