The robots have arrived, but they're all masseurs

2 December 2010

So this is where years of advances in robotics has got us. Not automaton butlers or sex replicants, but a mouse with wheels stolen off a pastry cutter. And it is a robot, according to the manufacturers:

"WheeMe is a palm size robot that gently massages and caresses as it moves slowly across your body. Embodying unique sensor technology, WheeMe automatically and silently steers itself over your body without falling off or losing its grip. As it moves, WheeMe's four small wheels and the rotor finger gently press and caress providing a delightful sense of bodily pleasure.

That's nice, but doesn't massage also involve applying pressure? This looks like a tickle machine for the under tens.

    "That’s nice, but doesn’t massage also involve applying pressure?" What you don't realise, is that mouse with pastry cutters weighs an impressive 10 stone, and is able to shift it's weight about using the power of magic! Or not, whatever.

What do you think?
