Japanese Robot Turns Snow To Bricks Of Ice

snowbrick-robot.jpg

Yuki-taro is a Japanese robot that runs down the street taking in snow and turning it into bricks of ice that he stacks on a shelf behind him. He's loaded with two video cameras and a GPS tracking system to help insure he doesn't make ice blocks out of any homeless that may be sleeping in the snowbank he's working on. No word on what the Japanese use the ice blocks for, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say for a sweet ice-domino knock-down. Because that's the only thing that makes sense. Oh, and this was on Foxnews with the title 'Robot Eats Snow, Poops Out Bricks of Ice'. I mean, wtf? Where the hell is Fox's journalistic integrity? Who uses 'poops out' in the title of a serious news story about a robot? Next on Foxnews: Man snarfs world's largest burger, totally blows chunks and still manages to take record-breaking crapola.
