Rosie The Robot You Are Not: A Personal Dog-Walking (Plus Other Things!) Robot

May 16, 2011


This is Luna. "The sharp dresser?" No, that's Mr. T Fred Nikgohar, the CEO of RoboDynamics, the company responsible for Luna. Luna is the dog. Jk jk, it's the ridiculous looking robot. The dog looks more like a Brownie or Sandy. But that's not what I came to talk about, I came to talk about wearing sneakers with a f***ing suit Luna the useless personal robot. Ha, did I say talk about? Because I meant quote about.

...she seems to be able to move in multiple directions and has special hands that can be placed in any position for various activities including the all-important "tray holding" position

It seems Luna will be coming soon and she will be available in standard and editions limited to 1,000 pieces. The robot has, according to the Schultze website "(1) completely expandable via expansion ports, (2) fully programmable with open standards and, above all, (3) affordable."

Yeaaaaaaaah -- a robot capable of holding things and rolling around. The future is now amirite?! No, I'm not. I built a better robot when I was six. Okay maybe not, but I did switch the legs and torsos on my G.I. Joe figures. Did I mention Luna can walk a dog? Because she can, provided A) you're a terrible pet owner and too lazy to do it yourself in which case you shouldn't have gotten one in the first place ("but he's sooooo cute!") 2) it doesn't have to go down any stairs 3) you don't mind Luna constantly running over your dog's tail and traumatizing it or D) having an angry neighbor smear dog shit all over your porch for having a pet-walking robot that can't pick up after it. It's a must buy!

Hit the jump for a video of WTF Worthlessbot appropriately set to Vangelis' 'Chariots of Fire' like it's about to win the Special Olympics in slow-motion or something.

Thanks to Daren, who only had children to do her housework for her. Same here (except mine make crafts to sell on eBay).
