Carnivorous Robot >.<

The designers & creators of these amazing sets of robots really amazes me. This time, the robot bites! Ouch!

No they don’t eat humans but they eat bugs & flies and other what nots to power themselves! Now this is amazing. A self-powered-bug-eating-robot. What can be better? >.<

According to the creator,

UK-based designers James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau believe that, if robots are ever to be welcomed into people’s homes, they’ll need to fit in with the rest of the furniture, and earn their keep. Their prototypes trap and digest pests like flies and mice to gain energy – see video demonstrating how they work.

This is truly amazing in terms of ideas and design. I also did not know that bugs can generate enough energy to power these robots but then I think I wouldn’t want the coffee table in my future home. Imagine that one day you are enjoying a cuppa coffee on the table and suddenly a mouse pops up along the table, went to the trapped door and *poof* eaten by the table…..Damn….That would be ewwwww! Kids do not imagine this at home! You have been warned >.<

And for those who enjoy befriending robots that does not have an appetite for bugs, go here, here and here.
