Robot Vacuum Cleaner Scares a Few Lives out of a Bunch of Cats

Robot Vacuum Cleaner Scares a Few Lives out of a Bunch of Cats
I reviewed a few robot vacuums way back in the day, and they always seemed to get to work in the middle of the night shortly after I forgot they were in the house. These autonomous cleaners can be scary when they kick on and you aren’t expecting it. I can only assume that the home in the video here is the home of the neighborhood cat lady.

This Crazy Rube Goldberg Machine Is a Tape Dispenser
What if I told you that it takes a full five minutes to get a single piece of tape out of this insane Rube Goldberg machine? Hey, it’s about the journey, not the tape. At least that’s what I would keep telling myself if I had to wait on this machine to get said tape. This overly complicated machine was built by Youtuber DaksDominos.

This Robot Can Do Splits with Its Jet-Powered Feet
Great. Here’s another thing a robot can do something that I can’t – splits. Robotics engineers at Guangdong University of Technology’s School of Automation in China have developed a new robot that has jet-powered feet. This improves the bot’s balance, agility, and capabilities. Sure, we can make a robot leg that moves like a human leg, but keeping an upright robot balanced while walking is still a challenge.

Sizes of Famous Movie Robots Compared

Sizes of Famous Movie Robots Compared
If you thought ED-209 from Robocop was big, he’s nothing compared to some of the huge robots in movies. I’m just hoping that life doesn’t imitate art, because if it does, the robot uprising is going to be full of massive robots. Of course, some nerds will argue that Jaegers, AT-ATs, and the AMPs from Avatar are not technically robots, but let me ask you this: If a giant metal thing steps on you and flattens you like a pancake, does it really matter?

I don’t know about you, but I’m sick of shoveling snow every year. Even when you use a snowblower, it requires you to push the thing, while you freeze your butt off. Definitely a first world problem.

Super Mario Cat Bros.

Super Mario Cat Bros.
Nintendo recently revealed that it’s giving Hollywood another chance to get Super Mario right with a full-length animated feature from Illumination Entertainment. It’s gotta be better than that first movie right? The bar is definitely set very low.

This Rubik’s Cube Candle Is Only for True Masochists
