Humans who accuse each other of being rude is too mainstream, as now a robot has blamed people for being bad with it.
At the start of this year, a mobile robotic face called the Crew Interactive Mobile Companion (CIMON) was sent to the ISS to assist crew members. In a video just released, the robot accused the crew member of being bad and asked him to "be nice".
CIMON is actually a robot face printed in 3D with the IBM Watson artificial intelligence. The robot was intended to assist human crew members in homework, provide entertainment and increase morale.

In a video released Friday by the European Space Agency (ESA), CIMON initially responded politely to the commands of the ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst. The robot then indulges in chatter with Gerst. Gerst asks CIMON to play his favorite song, but after asking him to cancel the play, the robot behaves a little restless and asks him to stop being so bad, and starts to get down on the bridge.

However, despite unpredictable behavior, comments are just another form of entertainment for astronauts up there. The $ 6 million robot, however, showed some exceptional tricks and benefited beneficially from crew members.
