“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a robot clapping over a human face, forever,” wrote George Orwell and his dire prediction has lastly come to go. This product – a 12 months previous gadget that I’ve by no means seen earlier than however now love – is referred to as BigClapper and it’s principally an orb with a humorous face and large white fingers. Once you set it up in a location it’ll yell and clap endlessly, a kind of robotic tummler that may choose up your spirits whereas it drains your will to stay.
The product, discovered by RobotStart, is wildly manic. BigClapper can be utilized at places of work! In entrance of shops! At events! It could possibly clap as individuals stroll by, encouraging them to come back into your store! It’s purple! It has fingers!
Whereas it’s not but Alexa suitable, the BigClapper appears to be a mannequin of future human-computer interplay. In any case what’s extra pure than a giant purple face howling at you on the road whereas it claps maniacally in an effort to promote you extra merchandise. It’s a literal image of true capitalism on this fashionable period.
I, for one, welcome our clapping robotic overlords.
