DustBot Takes Out the Trash

Shades of Wall-E! A group of European scientists got together to design and develop the DustBot over the past 3 years to help clean up narrow streets. Have a bag of trash? Summon one and he will come to take your refuse away, hopefully to a place that will either recycle or turn it back into the earth. They also monitor pollutant levels with onboard sensors. It pretty much resembles a glorified Segway but hey, anything that cleans up is okay in our book. Turn a few loose on the streets of NY and the residents will probably yell, Huzzah!"
