Push up those Armani shades and tighten your white trousers, the
Dustbot is coming to wash the scum off the streets like a Segway riding
Travis Bickle. Give him a call from your mobile and the Dustbot will
come to your house and dispose of the rubbish. At least that’s the plan
for this Italian disposal-bot fitted with GPS navigation, gyroscope,
and a bevy of sensors meant to keep it from crushing the innocents.
Look, we get that it’s a prototype and is meant to traverse the narrow
streets of ancient cities, but a trash collecting robot with the
capacity of just two kitchen cans seems like a serious limitation.
Watch the long slow ride after the break.
