The Gold Coast Bulletin in Queensland is reporting that an 81-year-old was shot dead by a robot that he had built using information taken from the web. The man who lived alone had deliberatly trained the robot to fire a gun.
The man apparently downloaded what he needed and then built a complex machine that would remotely fire a gun say the Bulletin.
He set the device up in his driveway about 7am yesterday, placed himself in front of it and set it in motion.
His notes explained that he chose the driveway as he knew there were tradesmen working next door who would find his body. The plan worked as the workmen heard the gunshots and ran to investigate.
The machine was attached to a .22 semi-automatic pistol loaded with four bullets.
It was able to fire multiple shots into the man’s head after he activated it.
