Although, not a direct threat to it’s creators, robots have been shown to be able to injure people with blades.

Robots with very sensitive sensors and quick hands have promise to accomplish various tasks such as cooking, surgery, and making origami.
Robots have potential to remove dangers involved with suicidal jobs such as bomb and weapons disposal. Speaking of, Japan released a robot to help gather data on the Fukushima plant; unfortunately it stalled and a rescue bot is probably needed.
