Say What? New Robot Can Make You Bleed
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The robot escaped before ending up on a city street, obstructing traffic when its batteries went flat, according to a video posted online.

The video showed a police officer directing traffic around the still robot.

The escape occurred due to a gate left open by an engineer, local media said. The robot had moved some 50 meters (160 feet) by the time its charge ran out, according to reports.

The loss was noticed almost an hour later, by which time the robot caused a minor traffic jam and gathered a crowd, with the police eventually arriving.
