Welcome Robot Awkwardly Greets People for You

Welcome Robot Awkwardly Greets People for You

The Robostool is at Your Feet’S Beck and Call
The RoboStool is a homemade robotic footstool that’s ready and willing to support your tired tootsies whenever you summon it. It’s a little reminiscent of the Take A Seat robotic chair but differs in that it uses 3 different modes of control.

USB Robot 4-Port Hub is More Hub Than Robot

USB Robot 4-Port Hub is More Hub Than Robot
The incorrectly named USB Robot 4-Port Hub has 4 twistable USB ports and no discernible robot parts whatsoever. You can twist each port up to 270 degrees, although off the top of my head I can’t think of why I would need to do that.

Crabfu Golf Robot Hits the Links

Crabfu Golf Robot Hits the Links
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a very good golfer. If you take par, then multiply it by a factor of 1.5x, that’s about what I usually hit. So I guess I was pretty pleased to see that this little robotic golfer doesn’t play any better than I do.

You Probably Don’t Need This Quasi-Robotic S’Mores Maker

You Probably Don’t Need This Quasi-Robotic S’Mores Maker
The Progressive International Microwavable S’Mores Maker is an unnecessary gadget that makes s’mores in the microwave for you, which I thought was a jolly headless robot. It’s more of fauxbot (faux robot.) That is to say, it sort of appears to be robotic but in fact it just has bendy arms that a human has to manipulate, which is a huge letdown for those of us who dream of robots performing simple everyday tasks like making our daily s’mores.

Solar Powered Robotic Bugs on the Attack!

Solar Powered Robotic Bugs on the Attack!
If you don’t happen to have enough room for one of those 22-foot tall styrofoam robots to defend the homestead, that’s okay. Thanks to the wild and wonderful creations of robot insect builder TinyMinds, you can get your hands on some little robots which should do the trick just as well.

Giant Styrofoam Robots on the Attack!

Giant Styrofoam Robots on the Attack!
Actually, despite their size, these styrofoam robots look pretty docile. In fact, you could probably take down an attacking Styrobot with a well-placed karate chop or two. With the largest of his creations towering overhead at 22-feet tall, Michael Salter’s packing foam robot sculptures are a sight to behold.

The “take a seat” chair is a robotic chair that follows you around! The user has a library card embedded with an RFID chip, which the chairs use to find and follow their target. Also, it’s one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

Robot Beggars – That’S All We Need Now.

Robot Beggars – That’S All We Need Now.
Now I’m sympathetic to those who have fallen on hard times, many of us still find people who beg for money to be irritating. So why someone would go through the trouble of building a robot that begs for spare change is anyone’s guess.
