"Carnivorous Domestic Robot Entertainment" ... We're All Screwed

There are SO many things wrong with the phrase "Carnivorous Domestic Robot Entertainment." Just to start, I don't want a carnivorous robot to exist anywhere, and definitely not domestically, AKA in my living room. And then I don't even want to address the fact that that these guys consider carnivorous robots to be entertaining. Wait, what? No, seriously... what?

Well, NPR just covered Auger-Loizeau Carnivorous Domestic Robot Entertainment design , which has developed a clock and lamp that literally eat bugs to power themselves, and a table that eats mice. I think we can all pretty quickly see the problem here (as well as multiple horror franchise development possibilities) with creating machines that eat meat.

Not only are we headed for a robot apocalypse, but we should also be seriously concerned about the mad scientist situation cooking up over here at the Carnivorous Entertainment club. This guy Auger is one bugged out clown target mask and voice synthesizer away from being a real life "Saw."

"A fly buzzing around the window" says Auger, "suddenly becomes an actor in a live game of life, as the viewer half wills it towards the robot and half hopes for it to escape."


We're all going to die.

    Umm, how about addressing how disgusting these people are in the first place. I don't know about you but I'm certainly not living in a situation where wild mice and insect infestation has become such an out of control situation that I need carnivorous furniture. How about just cleaning up after yourself once in a while?
