Man Designs a Robot to Kill Him — And Succeeds

An elderly man in Australia who didn't want to be placed in a home for assisted living built a robot to end his misery. He downloaded the specs for a robot that could point and shoot a gun, built it himself, then took it out to his driveway. There, the robot shot him down and killed him.

Sorry. This is very tragic. Poor guy has no doubt now convinced his family that he was mentally competent enough to carry a complex plan.
