Here are four robots that you don’t want to see next when waking up at night or in the morning. This list includes a strange robotic piggy bank that eats your coins.
Robot Piggy Bank
This creepy Banpresto Face Bank features an object-sensitive sensor in the eyes and actually eats coins.
Seriously, eating your coins is one thing, but designing the face like a demonic orangutan baby? That’s not cool, guys
What do you get when you combine a Robosapien V.2 with a teddy bear? RoboTed — created by Nocturnal of the Evosapien team.
As cool as this hack is, there’s something creepy about seeing someone gut a teddy bear and then stuff its lifeless skin with the cold body of a Robosapien
This $20,000 “Pregnant Robot” — developed to help med students — “simulates the pertinent vital signs and exports of a pregnant woman, including blood, urine and a baby.”
Even the baby simulates vital signs, and can change colors from pink to blue to signify oxygen deficiency. A human controller can initiate different complications, or just sit back as the robot runs through its program of baby ejection
This follow up to the RuBot is the next-generation of Rubik’s Cube solving robots. Plus, it plays robotic sounds while solving the cube — how cool is that?
