Neorest Robotic Toilet

neorest.JPG

What do you find when you watch late night talk shows? For one thing, you discover that someone gave Will Arnett and Amy Poehler a robotic toilet. The Neorest 500 and 600 has a seat that heats up automatically and its lid lifts up and down by itself. It has front and rear washing with auto-air drying. When you have finished, it deoderizes and flushes by with an activated sensor. Even scarier, the company has incorporated FuzzyLogic that records usage and re-educates itself week so it knows when to shut down to save power.

Can Material Beliefs Bots Coexist With Humans?

lampshadebot.jpg

The folks at Material Beliefs have a whole 'nother way of looking at domestic robots. Instead of looking like us, they resemble furniture and household accessories with the end result of co-existing with humans, albeit a bit sadistically. The team has come up with a mousetrap coffee table robot, a UV fly killer parasite, a fly paper robotic clock, a fly stealing robot and a Lampshade Robot.

When flying insects become attracted to the light, they fly into the holes, eventually croak and fall into the lower fuel cell. They then generate power for the LEDs which are activated when the house lights get turned off.

Two Robots for Two Personalities

myrobotalum.jpgangryrobot.jpg

Peruvian Luitpol Ruiz, a graphic designer and artist from the NOVICA group, has created this limited edition Robot Keychain. At a size of 0.2 x 2.8 x 4.5", he is handmade with aluminum and stainless steel, and has springs for arms and legs. Then again, if you lean more towards the evil side, this Sterling Silver Angry Robot from Pugster may be more your type.

Support Livestrong via Chalkbot

By now you have probably heard that Lance Armstrong's return to the Tour de France was to promote his Livestrong campaign. He didn't stop there. Livestrong and Nike came up with a robotic painter named Chalkbot that prints messages along the path of the race. Want to participate? Get your message chalked out by sending it to 36453 and you will not only own a piece of the road, but will help draw awareness to cancer as well.

Robots for Kids

French Bull's
Designer Juice Cups
are made of melamine, so they are mostly high heat resistant, shatterproof and safer than many made from other materials. But if you find out that the kids stuck Pepsi in the cup instead of juice, send them to the bathroom to brush their teeth. This little wooden Tatiri Toothbrush Holder Robot won't berate them but does come with a 2 minute timer so it will be more than just a fun companion.

Must Have: Robot Alarm Clocks

robottechalarm.jpgsilveralarm.jpg

We can think of nothing we would like better than to wake up to the sound "Beep, Boop, Bop." Luckily we found this Robot Tech Alarm clock. With a dark blue frame, at least it will great you with a smile and comes with 3 AA batteries. But if you like your robots the strong silent type, you might want to opt for the Silver Robot Tabletop Alarm that stands all of 4" tall and needs 1 AA battery (not included.)
