Robot with Gene Chromosomes

"A Korean scientist has created a robot that he claims can bequeath its “genes” to other robots... [It] has 14 artificial chromosomes that can be passed on to offspring, creating new robots with unique personalities."

What's the point in this?? We are really getting closer and closer to the time when robots can survive by themselves, having their own genes that can be passed on instead of relying on human's design. Am I alone here? cuz I really don't see why robots need to have genes. Robot, as far as I know, is what we(as human) want it to be; so shouldn't the "personalities" be something that we can control instead of relying on luck in "mating"?
