Isaac Asimov’s “Three Laws of Robotics”
- A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
- A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
- A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Have you ever written about robots? I never thought I would, but it’s an interesting territory, especially when you’re not following a science fiction formula. If you never have, today I think you should try it. If you need a little more inspiration, check out my very own short story, “The Simon,” over at Sundog Lit.
