Seriously, Robot Makers? This Is The Best You Can Do?

Apparently a team of intrepid robot inventors decided that ketchup application needed to be automated.

The idea of a Roomba for condiments sounds pretty cool (especially if it can wheel itself into the fridge and also somehow make sure that you never have to deal with that annoying ketchup-water dribble that gets your bun all soggy when you first open the bottle), until you see what they came up with, which is just disappointing and mostly confusing. Is the whole thing made of cardboard? What’s with the little Incredible Hulk doll arms twirling furiously on the sides? The only thing this video needs is Yakety Sax playing in the background.

    That actually isn’t a robot, it’s a hacked RC car being controlled by a guy off camera. That’s why they don’t have any control over how hard the ketchup is coming out, they are just using the motors and servos that came with the car without any speed or power modifications.

    Fuck the Roomba, I’d buy this in a heartbeat. That video just made my 2011 complete. I can die a happy man now.

    Worst… Robot… Ever…

  4. See, we are just way far behind where we should be.

    I mean, in the 80’s they had little alien robot flying saucer “fixers” that figured out how to make a decent burger pretty quickly. The fact that we would need alien tech to pull off something so simple in 2011 is really kind of sad.

    Get off your butts, robot-making peoples.

    You can never have enough Yakety Sax playing in the background.

    This will fit perfectly with my robots that flip burgers onto the floor and spill wine on people’s pants. Hit of the party!
