A viral video posted on Facebook shows 'Marty' a bug-eyed robot escaping. The robot ended up having to be pushed back inside by an employee.
Customers at a Giant Food supermarket in the Lehigh Valley area of Pennsylvania witnessed the moment a robot designed to improve the store's efficiency left its station and headed for the parking lot.
The big gray robot is equipped with multiple cameras and scanners that patrol the aisles looking for out-of-stock items. No explanation was given as to why the robot tried to escape.
The video was also posted on YouTube.
In the comments section of the video one person joked: "You know the work environment sucks when even a robot designed just to work gets tired of it."
"Even Marty is stressed because of society," said another person.
Another said: "It sounds like a sad dystopian tale where a machine gains consciousness and tries to run away from what it's done, only to fail."
