Keep Time with Robot Clocks

robotclockred.jpgrobwall.jpg

While anything red on a robot (especially eyes) tends to denote evil, we will
forgive this tabletop Alarm Clock. At a height of 4", he needs a AA battery to do his thing (not included.) If you prefer something a bit larger and more whimsical, this 10 x 10" Wall Clock is handcrafted and comes with mounting hook. You supply the AA battery.

Samu Cleans People and Animal Waste

samutrash.jpeg

Designed to almost resemble a dog, the Samu Robot Trash Can will dispose of both human garbage and animal poop. The glorified composter uses both additives and heat to automatically take care of 600 to 1,000g of the problem daily with the assistance of a timer. At a size of 555 × 283 x 447mm, the $900.00 container can be used for months before it needs cleaning up. Available in 4 different colors, the Samu seems to be available only in Japan for now. (Is it just us or does having a pooper scooper shaped like the pooper seem weird?

PETA Calls for Robotic Punxsutawney Phil

groundhog.jpeg

PETA, ever mindful of animal abuse, seems to think that Punxsutawney Phil, the national weather forecasting mascot of Groundhog's Day, should be replaced by a robot. They claim that the animals are generally shy and believe he should not be "trotted out to face human handling and hundreds of noisy people, flashing lights and cameras."

Bill Deely, Groundhog Club president, says that Phil not only gets a yearly checkup, but lives in a zoo enclosure with both heat and air conditioning. "He's treated better than the average child in Pennsylvania," Deeley said. Hmmm. He does look a bit shell-shocked in this photo.
