‘Tis the Seasoning for Robot Salt and Pepper Shakers
The cute little wind up salt and pepper shakers will make passing the seasoning down the dinner table a fun activity. A great gift for all those robotics geeks out there! From Mashable:
Your mother always told you not to play with your food. These salt and pepper robots beg to differ.
It seems as if in today’s day and age of smartphones and crazy new technologies, we can access pretty much anything in the palm of our hand. Delivery services such as Seamless, FreshDirect and GrubHub make food delivery effortless. Reaching across the table for the salt and pepper, however, has never evolved for the 21st century.
Until now. These adorable windup robots (designed by Mark Owens) function like tiny, robotic butlers, and will literally walk across the table to help you season your meal.
