I saw this on The Raw Feed
, and, I have to say: I want one
! This Robot Suitcase will follow you around without bumping into things. A card you carry in your pocket tells the suitcase where you are and then a combination of its software, a gyroscope, light detectors, and sound and infrared sensors help it to follow you around without running into anything else. If someone steals your card, an alarm sounds (how does it know?). Of course, although you can buy it now, it won't be released until 2009 according the the Russian catalog
where it was found. Well, maybe it's just a scam, but the people over at iRobot
should definitely take notice. This is the robot the world needs next! Well, that, and the one
that does the dishes, the laundry, and walks the dog.
