This devious domestic robot by designer Jeongmi Lee is really a combination of a robot and a house pet.
Jeongmi Lee wanted to construct a household bot that had a variety of functions and interacted with it's owner. The result of his efforts is this radical robot; not only does is move around cleaning the floors constantly, but it also acts as an alarm clock. An attachable string clips onto your covers, and when it's time to get up this pesky bot pulls your covers right off. Also, when his cleaning filters get dirty and need to be replaced, he extracts the old messy one as waste. The dirty filter is plopped onto the floor in a little cardboard container which has an image of poop on it.
This rowdy robot by Jeongmi Lee is pesky and helpful.
