Our New Spokes-Robot Overlords

You know you live in a dark distopian future when even the pretty spokes models at the tradeshows are being replaced with talking robots.

This robot (on the left in the picture) is what you get when a bunch of engineers have a bunch of components left over from their work and they decide to do something clever with it. This robot's arms, hands, mouth and even lips moved and gestured as he hawked the products he was selling. It is fasciinating to watch. Unfortunately he is taking a job away from some beatiful spokesmodel. This is just the wages of progress.

I for one would like to be the first to welcome our new mechanical spokes-robot overlords.
