It’s time for Win/Win/Fail! Three technological oddities, two of them awesome, and one of them totally dumb. Here we gooooooooo!
WIN: Paintable Android Figurine
Whether you carry around an iPhone or a Droid, you can’t deny that this little guy is awesome. Android passed the iPhone in new subscribers this year, and now they’ve passed them in omgsocute-ness. Here are some of Gizmodo’s ideas for the figurine:
WIN: Hawk Eye RC Chopper (with spy camera!)
RC helicopters are old news, but this one allows you to become your own recon and intelligence bureau with a built-in camera. It can snap still photos and take video, all at your command via the Dualshock-looking remote control.
FAIL: Roboscooper aka Dude, You’re Way Too Lazy
Don’t be fooled by the fact that the Roboscooper has infrared sensors that find objects on the ground and picks them up. The Roboscooper is worthless, and it should not be encouraged. Do not give the Roboscooper any praise after it picks up an item of one ounce or less (that’s all it can lift) off of your floor and puts it on its back. The Roboscooper is weak. When the robot uprising begins, the Roboscooper will not kill any humans. It will be relegated to picking up remains after the battle. Do not let the Roboscooper interact with your Roomba, or they will get ideas. Roboscooper costs $70, and is in no way worth that much money.
Fail, Roboscooper. Fail.
