K9 Strikes Again!

Only this time, the robot dog is helping people to lose weight. From New Scientist:


A ROBOT dog that monitors your daily food intake and exercise levels and warns you not to eat that cheesecake could encourage people to stick to their diets.

The health-conscious pooch connects wirelessly to the dieter's pedometer and an electronic diary of their eating habits, to calculate their daily calorie intake and expenditure.


(All right, so it's not really K9 doing this. It's still a robot dog! Now if only they had equipped him with the nose laser as a deterrent... "Do not eat that cheesecake, mistress, or I will be forced to shoot you!")

Comments

He will probably need that laser to defend himself against irate owners who want to eat the goddam oatmeal cookie in peace without robotic guilt trips to harass them.
Anyone mentioned lately that you're a geek? I say that with great love, but it is true nevertheless.
