Chess Robot In Moscow, Russia Breaks Boy's Finger During Match
MOSCOW - Video footage of the match posted online show the robot's mechanical arm grabbing the boy's finger, after the boy reached in to move one of his chess pieces before the robot was finished, crushing it between its pincers.
Adults rushed in and freed the boy's finger, but the robot had invariably "broke the child's finger", according to Moscow Chess Federation President Sergey Lazarev, who spoke to multiple Russian news outlets. "This is, of course, bad," he added.
Lazarev also said, "The robot was rented by us, it has been exhibited in many places, for a long time, with specialists. Apparently, the operators overlooked it. The child made a move, and after that we need to give time for the robot to answer, but the boy hurried, the robot grabbed him. We have nothing to do with the robot."
"There are certain safety rules and the child, apparently, violated them," Lazarev said. "When he made his move, he did not realize he first had to wait."
While he claimed that the robot is completely safe, he said, "apparently, children need to be warned."
