12/23/2004: Housesitter robot



Um, OK: according to the full story, this thing didn't fly out of someone's nose. It's actually a $30,000 robot that, well...

...can alert homeowners to burglars or housesit for their pets -- and, when not at work, lounge about and be "beautiful."

This serves as notice to the Japanese culture. You have arrived. You are now officially at the point where your money creates its own reasons to be spent.

HOUSESIT their PETS? Howzat? Maybe you put your hamster into it and let it operate it?

However, apparently there is a market for the British artists IotD keeps featuring: Designed by British artist Paul White, "Roborior" weighs 3.25 kilograms (7.15 pounds) with a height of 27 centimeters (10.8 inches) and can run at up to 19 centimers per second.

what? the robot was just created and now it needs its own cellphone? who is it calling? Skynet???

I'm betting you can network it and call your house and get real time cam shots.



lookout123  Thursday Dec 23 03:03 PM

hmmm, program it to follow the SO and now you can be avirtual stalker... excellent.



Roosta  Thursday Dec 23 04:20 PM

I don't see a vacuum nozzle or duster anywhere on that thing....



lookout123  Thursday Dec 23 04:23 PM

actually it doesn't do the cleaning on its own. it recruits slave labor very effectively though.



perth  Thursday Dec 23 05:49 PM

I don't think the items Roosta was looking for are for cleaning...

... How come we don't have a "self-love" emoticon?

If these things work fairly well, I want a divorce. With it's surveillance techniques, maybe get grounds for one?

does it have two arms & one breast or three arms & no breasts? Hopefully, the price is negotiabale.



richlevy  Thursday Dec 23 09:26 PM

I don't get it. Does the robot move about and fill the pet's water dish? A $75 netcam can do the watching part.

It looks like the love child of a lava lamp and a soap bubble...
