Robot vacuums have been around for quite some time, with offerings from Roomba, LG and Samsung encompassing the offerings over many different department stores. If you've purchased one of these for yourself and enjoy napping on the floor, as do many South Koreans, you may want to be fully aware of your newly-found vicious floor predator.
Spanning several drama-filled minutes, a South Korean woman was recently assaulted by her robot vacuum cleaner - eventually managing to switch it off and notify authorities, who came to her aide and managed to pry the poor innocent woman's hair from the robots vice-like grip.
We've been warned of robot attacks in the past, this could be just the beginning. However on a more serious note - don't sleep on the floor when your robot vacuum is active, especially if you've got long hair.
This article is filled with sarcasm, the attack did happen - however we don't think that robots are trying to kill us, yet.
