Asimov's three Laws of Robotics are frequently quoted thusly:
- A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
I think, however, you will find a Fourth Law (and no, I don't mean the 'Zeroth' one), which categorically states that a robot, when going about its normal every day existence, must not be cute, or do cute things.
Honda's Asimo breaks the Fourth Law of Robotics by running in a cute manner.
PS. Green line still here.
