And according to officials, it was the child’s fault. Okay, okay. Just kidding about the robot being sinister and it acting in a fit of rage. But it seems the fault was with the child and possibly a lack of safety measures. According to Sergey Lazarev, president of the Moscow Chess Federation, a 7 year-old who was competing against the chess robot back in July was the actual culprit. OK, maybe culprit is the wrong word, but the robot actually did nothing wrong. The child failed to observe safety protocols and took his turn too soon. While it’s “bad, of course” Sergey said, ultimately it was the child’s exuberance that caused the accident, and not fault of the robot. There is horrific footage of the incident but we can’t link to it because…that would be in poor taste. Here comes Skynet.
