Slashdot: Researchers Teaching Robots To Feel and React To Pain

On the one hand, I’m in favor of this since it will give us a leg up when the robots inevitably rebel. On the other, I hate the idea that this development opens us up to the possibility that some bots will be created for no other purpose than to suffer. Creatures designed primarily to feel pain? Humans are that already.
