This Toilet Scrubbing Robot Is The Hero We Need

Household chores suck. If you ask me, the worst chore is scrubbing toilets. We all dread it. If only there were a robot that would do the job for us. Well, there is. A team of researchers from the University of Koblenz-Landau have created a robot that specializes in the dirty job.

This toilet-scrubbing bot can detect people, objects, and the toilet seat, and even has a microphone for speech recognition, as well as a mobile base for moving around. It can approach a toilet, clean the seat and even the floor around the toilet. It will even pick up stray pieces of toilet paper and toilet rolls. It’s not the sexiest looking robot, but it gets the job done – albeit very slowly.

Sadly, it will be a while until we see this bot in our homes, so until then stop peeing everywhere, will ya? And when it does arrive, it will hit public areas like malls and airports first. But maybe soon after we can get this in our homes, so that robots can do what they were made to do – get down on their robo-knees and clean our toilets. Please don’t kill me future robots. I was just kidding.

The toilet scrubbing robot may just be the single most important robotic development yet. Mankind thanks you researchers. You are creating beautiful things now instead of things that will kill us all.
