A roboticist and artist has constructed the first robot “that was built to intentionally hurt and injure someone.” Alexander J. Reben, NY O ’08, wants to ignite a conversation about where technology is going and what dangers robots will present humanity in the future. Read the article form Fast Company that profiles this robot and Reben.
Reben created the robot to inflict a pinprick randomly. “No one’s actually made a robot that was built to intentionally hurt and injure someone,” Reben claims. “I wanted to make a robot that does this that actually exists.” He works as a member of Stochastic Labs, a Berkeley arts, technology, and science events incubator.
