Let's Pizza - Automatic Comfort Food

letspizza.jpg

As vending machines become more sophisticated they may go the way of the do-it-yourself Autowed or a library warehouse. So it is only logical that one of the next steps is Let's Pizza. Designed for malls, universities or even rest stops, the machine is already a hit in Italy and the UK. It provides freshly kneaded dough and toppings to create a pizza within 3 minutes. Designed by Claudio Torghele, who originally thought of making a machine with pasta, it may not have the same love as one from your local pizzeria, but it will get the job done.

Must Have: Wall Decor for Robot Fans

chalkboard.jpg

Does anyone use chalkboards anymore? They have come a long way as evidenced by this vinyl Robot Board that can be applied to most surfaces and in most cases (the exception being wallpaper) can be easily removed. At a size of 28 x 22", it can be cleaned with a damp paper towel and comes with 2 pieces of chalk.

While you are redoing those other walls, why not add one of these Decals to protect and defend? Each is 17 x 22" and can be custom ordered in one of 30 colors. An application tool and tester decal is included with purchase.

Smart Bed Makes Itself

Too lazy to make your bed? Then this one should be your next purchase. Spanish furniture makers OHEA has devised the Smart Bed that can make itself in 50 seconds. It will do this after three seconds of being empty when set on automatic mode. A mechanical arm rolls the covers up to the top of the bed while the pillows are straightened and set back down. No price is mentioned but we expect it to be one of those cases that if you have to ask how much it costs...

Titan The Robot May Carry Olympic Torch

Titan the Robot has been around for several years singing, dancing and performing assorted schtik. Created by Cyberstein Robots in 2004, Titan stands 7' 3" and has gone through 5 different metamorphoses. The company's long term goal is to create a fully autonomous version.

We have to give Cyberstein credit for being able pique everyone's interest enough to get him booked at such events as the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix, the UK premiere of both iRobot and Real Steel, and on the UK version of Big Brother. Look for the possibility of Titan being one of the Torch bearers at the 2012 Olympics this summer in London.

While we were searching for appropriate video, we also came across the pseudo King Robota, an extreme disc jockey also available for parties who seems to do his best work at car shows. Maybe we can get them to participate in a Real Steel Match!

(Thanks, Mark)

Pirate Bay to Use Drones?

pirate_bay_torrent_drone.jpg

Almost every day we seem to find more news about miniature drones being put to use in various scenarios. First there were those used for hotspots in places where there was no internet access, domestic police and fire departments are acquiring them and a couple of weeks ago The Pirate Bay blogged that they planned to use them to redirect traffic to secret servers.

Since an R/C vehicle could be easily tracked and the idea of keeping it secret seems unlikely, we tend to think it might have been a April Fools Day joke. What do you think?
