Japanese Robo-Goat Reduces Litter

If you've visited a petting zoo you've probably experienced how the goats love to chew on anything they can get their teeth on, whether it is a jacket, scarf, trousers or a German farmer's tractor fund. And everybody loves to feed them (except maybe that German farmer.)

It is therefore appropriate that this Japanese robot we see here is dressed up as a constant eating goat. Her mission is to eat the gamblers losing tickets at Tokyo's Edogawa Kyotei boat race. When the gamblers find out that their boat didn't make it to the finish line first the woolly ticket eating robo-goat gets the ticket, instead of the floor. This is a nice example of how innovative thinking can get people to enjoy doing something they usually hate doing. Stats for Fake Animal Eats Losing Stubs Trending: Older & Mild
