A herd of little blue elephants have been left on the loose in Japan. These little pachyderm robots with little yellow hats are also known as the Dasubee, or toilet scrubbing robots. The robots scrub and clean the urinals to keep everything sparkling clean.

Implications - The idea of creating robots to replace the jobs or make jobs easier for humans has been around for decades and is slowly starting to be seen more often. The featured urinal cleaner is a good example of using a type of robot to help out a human with their work. The only problem with this is that the person is probably working a lot less with the help of the robot.
