仕事がイヤになっちゃった? お掃除ロボが「焼身自殺」で丸焦げに

ネット上で「ルンバが焼身自殺」というトピックスが紹介され話題となっている。

英デイリー・ミラー紙のウェブサイトによると、火災事故が起きたのは、オーストリア西部の街キルヒドルフに住む44歳男性家族のアパート。現場にはホットプレートの上ですっかり灰となったお掃除ロボットの残骸が発見されたというもの。

男性は、テーブルの上に散らばった穀物などをきれいにするために使うため、いつもお掃除ロボをキッチンに置いていたという。使い終わったらスイッチを切るようにしていたと主張。今回、かけた際も「しっかり電源を切っていた」としているが、家族が家を留守にした後、実際ロボは動き始めている。

ホットプレートには電源は入っていたといい、こちらも問題だが、地元紙は「家事に嫌気がさして自殺したのだろう。」と冗談交じりに「焼身自殺」の動機について紹介しているとのこと。

このニュースに対して日本のネットユーザーからは

「ついにロボットも魂を持ったのか・・・」
「ロボットが己の存在の意味を考え自我をもったというのか。人類が地球を追い出されてしまう」

などロボットの進化を危惧する声や

「ホットプレートの電源も切れ」
「電源消し忘れをルンバのせいにするんじゃねーよ」

という持ち主へのツッコミなどが多数寄せられている。

これまでもルンバは東京・神田の路上をさまよう姿など数多くの脱走・迷子レポートが寄せられていたが、焼身自殺というのは初めて(と、思われる)。

仕事がイヤになっちゃった? お掃除ロボが「焼身自殺」で丸焦げに

ready to be asked, "Dude, where'd I put my beer?" a whole lot.

The party don't stop 'til you spill chicken wings all over your lap.

Aside from the cringe-worthy "Look! A six pack on my six pack!" jokes your drunk friend will undoubtedly make, just wait until she tries to tie her shoes.

If you're already this committed to drinking on the DL in public, we wouldn't be surprised if you end up thinking you're Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Junior" by the end of the night.

"DUDE YOUR BEER IS ABOUT TO SPI-- Oh, wait. It's cool."

Clever, but that remote would get lost faster than your beer. Also, encouraging people to lose track of their drinks might not be the best way to go.

A few beers later and your guests assume that you hired R2-D2 as your personal butler.

Does the night end with you trying to get this last sip of beer? Or does it BEGIN that way?

You know it's the end of the night when you start talking to your beer, but imagine what would happen if it talked back?

We'd like to see any beer actually make it into a drunk person's mouth with this product. Also, the makers ignored the obvious "Shotgun" pun opportunity. What a shame.

Not included: replacement iPod for when it falls into the ice water.

If you're already sitting on the ground, you've maybe had enough beer.

"DUDE YOU SPILLED BEER ON YOUR PHO-- Oh, wait. It's cool."

Have one too many and leaning over results in a waterfall of beer on your carpet. Sorry, mom!

"Have you seen my drugs? I mean my beer. I mean my bottle of beer. I mean my can of beer in a bottle of drugs."


All's well until your drunk friend tries to spin his "gun" around his finger.

You know a drunk person is just going to hold the can and have the gun part sticking out all night.

This might not confuse a drunk person, but the name "Shaft Cooler" will definitely make them giggle.
