Legend of the Lost Robot

Posted 20 Jun 2002 at 13:16 UTC by steve Share This

A light-seeking robot from an exhibit at the Magna Science Centre in the UK wandered away from researchers when left unattended recently. It left the building, crossed a parking lot, and eventually began moving in circles in the alternating light under a nearby shade tree. Within days, the story of the event has generated headlines like "Thinking robot in escape bid" and "Living robot escapes lab". A less sensational version of the story appears in the Guardian.
