ROBOT DESIGNED TO KEEP PEOPLE SAFE FELL IN A FOUNTAIN


The Knightscope K5 security robot’s job is to be on the look out for crime. It might also want to keep an eye on where it’s going. Officer workers at the Georgetown Harbour office and retail space in Washington D.C. tweeted photos on Monday of the building’s robot security guard marooned and toppled over in a water fountain. The K5 is limbless, so it couldn’t lift itself out of the fountain, and good old fashioned humanity had to come to the rescue. The K5 is designed to act as an extra set of eyes for law-enforcement and security services in public spaces. It’s unclear how this particular K5 ended up in the fountain, which has steps leading into the water.
