China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

An “as­sault by ro­bot” that left a man need­ing stitches at a tech­nol­ogy fair has been blamed on in­cor­rect op­er­a­tions.

The in­jury at the China Hitech Fair (CHTF) 2016 was caused by elec­tronic misop­er­a­tion, the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee of CHTF said on Fri­day.

The vis­i­tor was re­port­edly in­jured af­ter the ro­bot named Xiao Pang, the Chi­nese for “Lit­tle Fatty”, was dis­played for a demon­stra­tion at the China Hitech Fair — where he ran into a window, smash­ing it into pieces.

The vis­i­tor’s leg was wounded by bro­ken glass and he was taken to Pek­ing Univer­sity Shen­zhen Hos­pi­tal by an am­bu­lance. He later went home af­ter re­ceiv­ing a few stitches.
