The Jolly Roger Telephone Co. is a Kickstarter-funded app that helps consumers take action against annoying telemarketers. For many people, receiving calls from telemarketers at all hours can be a frustrating experience. This automated app provides a harmless way to get revenge by keeping the telemarketer on the phone for long periods of time.

The Jolly Roger Telephone Co. is a friendly robot application designed by Roger Anderson. The app is designed to keep telemarketers engaged for several minutes by relying on pre-recorded words and non-committal phrases. The robot is even capable of spinning short stories such as how he has just woken up from a nap or how the telemarketer reminds him of someone from high school. While it may seem a little cruel to waste the time of employees, the robot is designed to be both polite and agreeable.

The automated robot ultimately provides a high-tech solution for those who are frustrated with fielding daily calls for telemarketers.
