LeBistro - Robotic Pet Feeder

lebistro.jpg
One more chore can now be dismissed. The Petmate LeBistro Portion Control Pet Feeder is a programmable pet feeder that will automatically dispense up to five pounds of kibble. You can schedule it to distribute as much as 2 cups up to three times a day. The gadget works on 3 D batteries (not included.) Petmate also has a smaller version and Waterer available. We hope the next generation includes a pooper scooper because YOU didn't stay home and let your dog/cat out!

Robotic Memory Stick

In addition to the Robotic Flash Drive we found back in June, we also discovered this 1GB Memory Stick for those who believe that it is easier being green. He may not hold as much as his shinier counterpart but his eyes light up during data transfer.

"It's A Small World" Gets Makeover

Disneyland has updated "It's a Small World," one of their earliest animatronic rides. This delighted my kids when they were small but almost got me kicked out as I tried to decapitate one of the little buggers. Many of the characters are reportedly created in the style of the original, such as Alice in the UK scene, and there is a new "Spirit of America" scene that supposedly crosses all nationalities. The original press release declaims the rumor that the ride was shut down because of it boat riders ever-increasing girth. Whatever the reason, we find the video as obnoxious and annoying as ever.

Korea to Build Robot Land

robotland.jpg

Korea is actually going to erect a Robotic theme park. Dubbed Robot Land, it should be up by 2014. Built to promote their robotics industry, it will house a stadium, research and education centers, exhibition halls, corporate offices and play equipment. We wonder if they will hire real people as staff after it is completed.

Robo-Urinal - Better Left Unflushed

robourinal.jpg

We're not sure if this is a prototype, someone's idea of a gag or perhaps robotic art. We only know that it gives new meaning to the term "helping hands." Makes you want to cross your legs just looking at it, doesn't it?
