Robot Suicide

A security robot from the firm Knightscope was patrolling the Georgetown Waterfront complex in Washington, DC. It apparently descended into the pit of depression and gave up its will to live, plunging itself into a fountain face first. The robot suicide was documented in a photo Tweeted by Bilal Farooqi. He said,

We were promised flying cars, instead we got suicidal robots.

The Georgetown robot may be the first to end its own life in the real world, but its demise reminds us of the many depressed robots in pop culture. There's Marvin, from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and the Pass the Butter Robot from Rick and Morty, and quite a few others named in an article at Buzzfeed.
