OK, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch but after the story on the corpse-dining EATR bot and then reading the two articles below, it just follows reason. You’ll see what I mean.
The Flesh Eating Robotic Clock – uses a conveyor belt of fly paper to catch and ‘eat’ flies to power itself. Researchers hope to also have a bug powered lamp and rat-eating coffee table. WTH?? – My coffee table currently consumes no power, and I have no rats. It’s like inventing an electric doorstop.
OK, so combine the ‘bio-fueled’ robots (a disturbing trend indeed) with the Robo Bat and it just sort of follows.
See? Robot Vampire Bats. Keep your shotguns handy.
Heaven forbid they join forces with the exploding robot snakes.
