Flaming Android Pants

Dear Readers,

And now for something completely different.


This animatronic shopping cart was built as an art project. "I was interested in the concept of automating aspects of society that were considered not so ‘glamorous’," says the builder. "For example, homeless people live in extremely dangerous environments. Shouldn’t there be automated equipment used by this strata of society?"

Interesting idea! But why stop there? Why not completely mechanize this dangerous and thankless industry? Let all the panhandling and vagrancy be handled by robots! These robots could be designed specifically for extreme weather conditions, and could even be configured to accept donations via SpeedPass or SMS. The robots could be semi-autonomous, operated by telepresence from the comfort of the nearest wi-fi hot spot! One operator could coordinate panhandling and vagrancy operations at several locations concurrently! The productivity gains would be unbelievable!

Artistically Yours,

The Electronic Replicant

  1. But… okay… why was it on fire though?
    Also, LOVED the way all the people walking around it totally didn’t even look. As though that sort of thing is just too commonplace to really take notice. Heh.

  2. That had to be the most bizarre thing I have seen in a while. I have to agree with TitanKT on the way people seemed that it was a regular happening… damn television corrupting our shock values. ;)
