Watch a Robot Go on a Sandwich Run

Here is a video of a robot who is kindly not trying to steal your job like some other robots might, but is instead just trying to get you a sandwich. Robot scientists programmed this robot, the PR2, to bring them sandwiches, despite not knowing where the sandwich might be located. First the robot looks in the fridge, and when it discovers there aren't any sandwiches in there, goes to a Subway in another building, orders one, and brings it back. Finally, robots are being programmed to do things to benefit humanity.

By the way, the PR2 has also learned how to make cookies. So it's a cookie-making, sandwich-procuring robotic life-saver. Here's the video:
