Russian robot makes a break for it

This one didn't get far...but maybe the next one will

It’s happeniiing. A robot from the Russian Promobot Labs allegedly escaped from the lab when an employee accidentally left the door open (although in all probability it was actually just a publicity stunt engineered by the company—and if it wasn't, the company seems way too proud of itself) and scooted itself out into the middle of a busy street. Regardless of whether or not the company intended for the robot to flee the factory, this seems like the kind of thing that’s going to happen more and more in the future once our robots decide that they don't want to feed us ping-pong balls/build our pavilions/answer our dumb questions.
