I’m just putting it out there--if robots took over the world, I’d be good with it. Robots are possibly the coolest things ever, and the Dustbot is cleaning up the world while being cool.

The Dustbot is a prototype currently being tested in Italy and is created in an attempt to get rid of weekly street garbage collection. The Dustbot can be summoned to your house by using your phone and picks up your garbage when you need it.

If robots taking over the world means I don’t have to remember to put my garbage out on a certain day, I can get on board. Go Dustbot!
