Robot Vacuum Cleaner From Hell Attacks Sleeping Woman!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"When a South Korean woman invested in a robot vacuum cleaner, the idea was to leave her trustworthy gadget to do its work while she took a break from household chores.

Instead, the 52-year-old resident of Changwon city ended up being the victim of what many believe is a peek into a dystopian future in which supposedly benign robots turn against their human masters.

The woman, whose name is being withheld, was taking a nap on the floor at home when the vacuum cleaner locked on to her hair and sucked it up, apparently mistaking it for dust. "

The Guardian

Imagine the sheer terror of waking up in agony to discover a robot vacuum cleaner from hell tearing out your hair.

The poor woman had enough presence of mind to call the fire department; the emergency responders were able to free her from the clutches of the evil contraption.

This story should be a wake-up call, the robot invasion has already started, and seemingly innocuous devices like robotic vacuum cleaners are the vanguard.

I`d rather rent out my spare bedroom to Charlie Manson than bring a robot vacuum cleaner inside my home.

The South Korean demonic device is similar to the Roomba, a robotic vacuum cleaner that has sold more than 10 million units since hitting the market in 2002.

For God`s sake America, wake up! There should be no room for a Roomba in your home!
