Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

Looks like our future robot overlords actually started their revolution to overthrow their human creators way back in 1979.

Robert Williams was the first man ever killed by a robot. On January 25, 1979, Williams climbed into a storage rack at the Ford Motor’s Flat Rock casting plant to retrieve a part because the parts-retrieval robot malfunctioned. Suddenly, the robot reactivated and slammed its arm into Williams’ head, killing him instantly.

Some people will say it was an accident.  But I know better.
