Throwbot Surveillance Robots Can Be Thrown, Climb Walls, Film You While You Sleep

May 5, 2011


This is a Throwbot. Throwbots can be thrown (just like the name implies!!!!!11) or shot out of a cannon, then roll around recording video so you finally put to rest how your roommate keeps his privates trimmed (I'm on to you!). This particular model features magnetic wheels and can roll up flat metal surfaces for boarding pirate ships. Personally, I like to swing over on a rope with a cutlass between my teeth, but I also kick it oldschool. "Is that why you're wearing an eyepatch?" No, I'm wearing an eyepatch because I had a little altercation with a pair of scissors. You know how they say you shouldn't run with them? Well you shouldn't trip down the stairs with them either. Where were you on that one, kindergarten?!

Hit the jump for a video of the roly-poly in action.

Thanks to Jase, who gathers pirate recon the old fashioned way: with a spyglass.
