Quirky Asia Files: the Japanese Snow-Eating Robot

Only the Japanese!

Here is a cute little yellow robot that cleans up snow. How? It scoops up the snow, "eats" it, and turns it into neat, stackable bricks of ice that the robot then "poops" out. Seriously. I can't make this stuff up.

And since the robot is Japanese, it's ridiculously cute. Doesn't it look a lot like a tiny MINI Cooper car or maybe Pikachu from "Pokemon"?

I just read your comments on iMonk regarding Osteen.

You said it better than just about anyone else there.

This robot requires a well ordered society. In most any northeastern US city, those little ice bricks would be called "ammo." Plate glass windows beware ...
