Roborior: Spooky Robot Pet Watcher

Posted 8 Dec 2004 at 17:29 UTC by steve Share This

The Swirling Brain sent a spooky robot news alert in today. It seems that Tmsuk, the prolific Japanese robotics company that brought us the dragon robot Banryu, the gun-toting Tmsuk04, and other strange robots, has now come up with their weirdest robot yet. Roborior is a robot whose design was inspired by the appearance of a jellyfish but looks more like a glowing blue and red alien brain. The glowing brain moves around your house taking care of the pets (or more likely, making them hide) and looking out for intruders. This is one robot that doesn't need any weapons. If a burgler sees a glowing brain coming down a dark hall towards him, he's likely to die of fright. If it doesn't frighten intruders away by its appearance, it will call you on your cell phone and send you photos of your home being robbed. The bizarre robot was designed by Paul White of Me Company (whose angry bunny spewing eggs out of its head Flash website is almost as weird as Roborior). Tmsuk and Sanyo will be jointly marketing the Roborior robot.
