Robots Continue to Invade…

That, my technology loving friends, is what has come to be known as the “bumbot.” Developed by a bum-hating man named Rufus Terrill, owner of the Atlanta bar O’Terrill’s. Its a meat smoker, which comes equip with a spotlight, an infrared camera, a loudspeaker and a water canon. Now, I can respect a remote control meat smoker with a water canon, because you have to respect something like that, otherwise you’ll get hit with a hard spray of water. But robots should not be bouncers!! I won’t go through the whole “I, Robot” thing again…but seriously. Stop giving robots human jobs! Especially when booze is involved! Can you imagine stumbling out of a pub, happily fizzing with a thick beer buzz and running into a meat smoker that promptly shines a spotlight on you and hoses you down? What a way to ruin a perfectly good night.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “Terrill insists he’s not a kook, that he’s serious about using his robot to fight crime.” You can’t say that you’re not a kook and then follow that up by saying you want your robot to fight crime. You can’t.
