Pollen-Robos Track Levels in Japan


Japan's Weathernews has distributed 500 Pollen-Robos, bots that monitor the pollen level for the approaching allergy season. Volunteers place them outside their homes to record real time pollen level, temperature, barometric pressure and humidity. The data is then sent to the Skynet company by the Internet. Each has glowing LED eyes and vary in color depending on the amount of pollen out there. We think they should have taken it one more step and taught them to say "Gesundheit."
