I suppose it was inevitable. Azimov’s immutable Three Laws of Robotics are:
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
My bot has injured a human, me. The other day I leaned in too close to observe a build and the ‘bot’s Z axis pulley/belt yanked out a hair from my head.
My bot has refused to obey the orders of a human. Refusing to obey my orders is kinda the default mode for my ‘bot.
My bot has harmed itself despite my numerous verbal commands to the contrary. When aborting a build my ‘bot has occasionally tried to carry out additional orders – by pushing the Y or X carriage so far that either the pulley, belt, or both are shoved out of whack, thus damaging it’s own alignment.
