Robot Kid Rickshaw Driver is Cool, Also Creepy

Where do I begin with this one? I always think it’s strange enough (and rather hilarious) to see a real rickshaw in action with some poor guy pulling people three times his size. When I saw the Robot Kid Rickshaw Driver though, I wasn’t sure to think if it’s cool or maybe a little bit creepy. Maybe it’s both.

It kind of reminds me of a cyborg version of Chucky. The way it moves looks like it could easily pick up a knife and start chasing the kid around. If the Robot Kid Rickshaw Driver actually becomes a hit though, what will those poor little rickshaw drivers do for work? Stats for Automated Infants Trending: Older & Average
