"Defective" and the 3 Laws of Robotics

We came across this kewl video called "Defective." Made by Rani Naamani, two robots vie for the same hand, literally. This reminds us of the Three Laws of Robotics as created by Isaac Asimov in his book "I, Robot" and the film of the same name. For those who are unaware that bots have rules, this is our holiday gift to you.

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 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 Law.

Have a great day and check out aniBoom for more amazing animation.
