Vigil for a ROBOT/Photo from Twitter

From SF Gate: This story originally appeared on The Daily Californian.

Describing the robot as a “hero” and a “legend,” UC Berkeley students expressed their grief on Facebook as news of a fallen KiwiBot reached the campus community.

About 2 p.m. Friday, a KiwiBot — one of the more than 100 robots that deliver food throughout the campus and city — caught fire outside the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union.

According to Sasha Iatsenia, head of product at Kiwi, the company is still working with UCPD to investigate the cause of the fire. Nothing like this has ever happened before, Iatsenia said.

UCPD could not be reached for comment as of press time.

Footage from the scene shows one person putting out the flames with a fire extinguisher. The fire drew a small crowd of curious onlookers, and videos of a slowly blackening KiwiBot were soon thereafter uploaded to Facebook’s Overheard at UC Berkeley page.

Garnering more than 300 reactions and more than 90 comments within an hour of uploading, the video of the robot in flames made waves on the page. Students have called for a moment of silence, suggesting finals week may have finally gotten to the robot as well.

While the KiwiBot may have been scorched, Iatsenia assured The Daily Californian that it was not delivering a meal when it caught fire — no one saw their order lost.

  1. God help this country with young people like these.

  2. I read that the robot was carrying a book, “How to Serve Humans.”
    Now if we could get rid of the robots on CNN and MSNBC….

    • Very good, Steven!

      I recall reading that short short story by Frederic Brown 60+ yrs ago. Like O Henry, he was a master of surprise endings, only revealed in the final sentence. In this case the first human, speaking to another, when asked what was the nature of the book How to Serve Man, which ET’s always carried on them, replied “It’s a cookbook.”

  3. If people started taking these out, as well as the “auto-checkouts” in stores I’d have hope for the generation. In talking to people its truly amazing how few relate these to their own potential loss of employment. How can that be?

    These same “mourners” probably are ashamed to be human. It’s the same group of morons that believe humans to be an aberration.

  4. Wait, they’re serious and not being sarcastic? Sadly, they’re serious.
