#Viral : #Promobot #Robot was killed by self-driving #Tesla car. #Tesla has found itself involved in yet another self-driving car accident – and this time, its victim was a $2,000-per-day rentable #humanoid #robot.
The accident occurred on Paradise Rd Sunday night as engineers transported the firm’s robots to the display booth.
A Russian company called #Promobot, which is commercializing a humanoid robot for businesses, is bringing its robot to CES this year.
The video doesn’t show how the robot got there, but the company claims that they were bringing their robots to their booth at CES when “one of them stepped out of line and into the parking lot roadway.”
The crash tipped the robot onto its side, causing ‘serious damage,’ Promobot says.
Now, with parts of its body, head, arm mechanisms, and movement platform destroyed, it cannot be put on display.
The firm says the damage is likely irreparable.
The bizarre news now has many people wondering whether the incident was a PR stunt, or simply an unfortunate coincidence.
