Today Engadget reports on nifty Japanese technology that may revolutionize poop patrol!
The SWITL robotic hand, designed by Furukawakikou can pick up wet, gooey messes and move them without changing their shape. SWITL was developed to speed up and simplify the handling of soft and/or gooey materials at bakeries.
How does it work? According to Engadget it may be the tool of Satan:
Unfortunately, Furukawa Kikou isn’t providing any details about the science behind SWITL so we’ll just assume that it’s Satan’s work until otherwise informed.
When SWITL was first announced back in June of 2009 Japan Tech Niche reported (italics mine):
The “SWITL” was developed base on a need for automated process for lining up bread dough at the factory which was handled manually before. “SWITL” is technology is patent pending and can apply not only in the food industry but also in wide different filed of applications. The company is planning to develop a new products implementing “SWITL” technology in a near future. Interesting idea indeed, I leave it to your imaginative mind to come up with the SWITL new applications.
Evil or not, cross Roomba with SWITL and dog poop littering yards and parks across the country could be, well, eliminated!
