    A roving security robot — oblong and about four-feet-tall — plunged into a water fountain outside a Washington, D.C., office building Monday afternoon, sending online commentators into a tizzy and causing many people to spot plenty of metaphors for the much-promised autonomous future.

    Numerous photos posted online showed the robot on its side in the ankle-deep water as workers tried to figure out how to rescue it.

    The autonomous machine was apparently making its usual rounds outside the Washington Harbour office and retail complex in Georgetown when it tumbled down some steps and into the fountain. The robot began operating at the complex in recent days, according to an office worker
    The robots name was not released pending notification of the next of kin.

    Twitchy has some screen shots of tweets about this incident.
