Robot Vacuum Cleaner Attacks Woman As She Sleeps

Recommended Posts

When a South Korean woman invested in a robot vacuum cleaner, the idea was to leave her trustworthy gadget to do its work while she took a break from household chores.

Instead, the 52-year-old resident of Changwon city ended up being the victim of what many believe is a peek into a dystopian future in which supposedly benign robots turn against their human masters.

The woman, whose name is being withheld, was taking a nap on the floor at home when the vacuum cleaner locked on to her hair and sucked it up, apparently mistaking it for dust.

The agony of having her hair entangled in the bowels of the contraption roused the woman from her slumber.

Unable to free herself, she called the fire department with a “desperate rescue plea” and was separated from the robot’s clutches by paramedics, according to the South Korean newspaper the Kyunghyang Shinmun.

Every woman's dream - a machine that cleans the house and then rogers her afterwards. The firm that invents that one will make a fortune..

I think you are describing a Sybian with a suction feature. :blink:

That's just the 'modern man' you've described isn't it?
