Crazed grocery robot in lima bean bloodbath!
Hello Blog Guy, I am Susie, your personal robot. I will be assisting you in your grocery shopping today. What can I fetch for you?
Geez, Susie, you’re funny-looking.
You are no George Clooney your own self, Blog Guy….
Let’s look at my list here. Go to Produce and bring me some tomatoes and potatoes….
You say tomato, I say tomahto, you say potato, I say potahto….
Just do it quietly, Susie. I’m trying to listen to the Muzak. Now bring me a couple of huge t-bone steaks and a box of chocolate doughnuts…
Here, instead I have brought you celery and tasteless tofu. It is time for your January diet, Lardbutt.
Sigh, okay. Bring me a big can of Del Monte lima beans. They’re on sale…. Hey! WTF is this? There’s a severed human hand attached to the beans!
It was the last can, Blog Guy. I had to take it from an elderly individual. Just act normal. BIG CLEAN-UP ON AISLE SIX, PLEASE…
A robot named “Robovie-II”, developed by Japanese robotics research institution ATR, moves around at a grocery store during a shopping assisting experiment in Kyoto, Japan January 6, 2010. The robot greets the shopper at the entrance of the store, follows him to the shelves while holding a grocery basket and reminds him of the items on a shopping list, which the shopper enters beforehand in a special mobile device.
