Robotic vacuum cleaners have been around for quite some time. There are ones for the house and pool, and now… one for your large boat or yacht. The KeelCrab is the first R.O.V for the autonomous cleaning of your boats hull and keel. A clean hull is a big deal. It can reduce...

The resident iRobot a-hole CEO, Colin Angle, recently made a statement that the company may begin selling customers house floor plans. Specifically it mentioned selling to Amazon, Apple, and/or Google. This assumes they are even buyers. Let me back-up a bit. Apparently the newer iRobot Roomba’s scan and map the inside of your home. We all assumed this was just so this robotic vacuum cleaner could navigate the house and contents in a more efficient manner. Makes sense, right? Well in a truly douchey fashion iRobot is now pondering...

A Junior at Stanford University, Joshua Browder, has developed a chatbot called DoNotPay that uses artificial intelligence to dispense free legal assistance. While I am not sure I would call this AI, more like a templated search engine, it is pretty neat. Joshua claims that DoNotPay has helped people defeat more than 375,000 parking tickets in about two years. Not sure how he knows this information. ...

For the people making money by driving cars and trucks – enjoy it, while it lasts. The Einride T-Pod Self-Driving Truck can drive on highways in full autonomous mode and then be remotely controlled for urban driving. Range is 124 miles and load capacity is 15 pallets or 20 tons of goods. All of this in just 23-feet thanks...

Let me start off by professing my love of my Ergo Auto Pet Feeder 2000GS (you can read that review here). While it is close to perfect, it isn’t “smart” and doesn’t have remote feeding. With that said it does the job just fine and hasn’t failed me for over 15 years. That says something. Now on to the RolliPet Smart Pet Feeder ($139)...

This chubby little robotic fish is the world’s first bionic wireless underwater drone. This fish drone is named BIKI and it has a 4k camera, a wireless controller, a Smartphone app for control, and a battery life of up to 150 minutes. The BIKI isn’t going to complete an deep sea missions but it can dive to 196 feet and will even come to the surface when its battery is running low. Currently the BIKI Fish Drone is living on Kickstarter with an estimated price of

This incredibly fast robot/machine sorts tomato on the fly by swatting down underripe tomatoes. The ripe tomatoes make it to a bath while the slightly yellowed ones go to a reject bin. Video of the TOMRA Sentinel II tomato sorting machine after the break. (more…)

This mammoth RC truck, the Mammuth Rewarron, is somewhere between a UTV and a go-kart. It is over 6.5-feet long, weighs 375-pounds, and is powered by a single cylinder 4-stroke 270cc engine. Not sure where it is made but I believe it is from Hungary. Price tag = $5,500. Having something this big that I have to walk next to to take it to the park seems awesome, but not perfect. If only the Rewarron was just a bit bigger, then I could ride it around a bit. I’m not hoping to replace...

The “ugly Christmas sweater” parties are about to get next-level-epic now that you can have your own industrial sweater knitting machine, the Kniterate ($4,600). I know, the price is a tad crazy but you could split it amongst friends and get years of custom sweaters. The Kniterate Knitting Machine can take just about an design you can think of and convert it into a hideous work of art. ...

The march of automation continues. Some people think that their jobs are untouchable, for example folks in the medical field. There are already robots that can perform highly technical and precise surgeries. It won’t stop there. The triage nurse has a new robotic competitor from a Begian company called BeWell. The robot is named Wellpoint and it is a self-service kiosk for patients entering hospitals. Traditionally a nurse would take about seven minutes to say “hello”, measure your weight, pulse oximetry, and blood pressure...
