Tell the person who told you that robots will take over all our jobs is wrong. If he or she doesn't believe you, tell them about DONA the Panhandling Robot.

Robots have been used developed for various reasons, but begging? That's something new and incredibly strange, and yet, DONA The Panhandling Robot has made its way to the world. The clip shows a public demonstration of the android actually begging for change. Drop the change into the cup and DONA will look down, look at you and bow in appreciation. I'm not too sure how it'll benefit the world, but it's wonderfully humorous nonetheless.

Yes, perhaps robots will take over certain jobs soon. But if DONA the Panhandling Robot has taught the audience anything, it's that a crappy economy affects them too.
