Reader & Guinness #12

A misguided middle-grader comic strip
Lucky for Reader, his robotic rodent creation, Guinness, has already read the rules.

Lucky for Reader, his robotic rodent creation, Guinness, has already read the rules.

When our favorite distracted teen, Reader, built a guinea pig from random e-bay parts and added his cell phone sim card as a brain, he created a robot who’s better read than he is. And it’s a good thing!

Isaac Asimov’s 3 laws of robotics, first introduced in his 1942 short story “Runaround“:

  1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
  3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

The question is do these laws apply to accidental middle school science projects too?

Enjoy!
