In the near future, numerous advances in technology give rise to Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Shortly thereafter, the production of humanoid robots equipped with Articial Intelligence begins, placing these robots in homes and businesses to provide daily support with different tasks and thus alleviate the stresses of daily life.
For this particular Servant-Bot, he has been placed in a family home in a local suburb outside the city. After a few weeks of participating with the family, helping them with their tasks and carefully observing them, he begins to contemplate what relation he has to the family. Seeing as how he works with them, helps them and is constantly interacting with them, he begins to believe that he is part of the family and therefore also a human being. Thus, as a human, he feels he should also perform a similar daily routine as that of every other member of the family. Therefore, in the morning, he gets up goes to the bathroom, sits on the toilet for a bit. He then proceeds to put shaving cream on his face, and attempts to shave. He then plans on also taking a shower as his other family members do.
However, with such advanced and intricate technology driving these robots, they are susceptible to damage from elements that would otherwise not harm a human, particularly water. Thus, this robot’s identity crisis will lead to its demise.
Hi all! Basically this is a robot that has such advanced Artificial Intelligence that it thinks it’s a human. So, it feels like doing human things and thus goes through a normal morning routine for a human… he sits on the toilet reading the newspaper, then tries to shave (haha) and then goes to take a shower… only problem is, the water will end up short-circuiting and destroying him!
