    Can’t wait to get my sh!tty robot card

    Edit: as far as suggestions for automation, it would be cool to see that arm wash those post holiday dishes.

    Simone… you look really tired

  7. LSTNR says:

    Nah you look fine. More importantly you should make a robot that’ll help you make robots.

  8. A's Chronicles says:

    Simone is so pretty! who agrees?

  9. NoPantsPizza says:

    An automated stamper would have been better…Just make it stamp whatever you’d write on the holliday card 2000 times.

  10. Jay Kay says:

    Simone, you look like you just puked after drinking a lot.

  11. Jay Kay says:

    The robot looks like a sex toy.

    ‘That’s a problem for Tomorrow Simone’

    i’m SO glad i’m not the only one who does this. I will assign projects to Future Me and will occasionally look at something that Past Me has left (ie, left one more packet of oatmeal for Future Me to enjoy on a chilly morning) and say, ‘thanks Me in the Past!’

    “Happy holidays here is a line”

    My high school boyfriend broke up with me on a very long note written on a toilet roll. This is pretty similar πŸ˜‚

      +Holmesy87 omg, that is unbelievably sad: (

    • Rage 2550 says:

      Well the only option you have left is to cut your wrist like every other depressed girl dose now a days.

      Better get to it.

    • andrineslife says:

      Rage 2550 Are you okay? Suicide is never the only option, know that things will get better, despite your mind telling you it won’t. I hope you get help.
      Until then, please stop telling others to endanger their lives. I’m sure you wouldn’t like it if human lives were actually lost due to your actions. I’m sorry you’re feeling bad, but telling others to hurt others and themselves isn’t the solution.

    • Rage 2550 says:

  16. Johan Andersson says:

    As a Swede I get really uncomfortable around KUKA robots…

  17. Reviewy McReviewface says:

    I wonder how well the robot arm would do at either wrapping or unwrapping presents?

    Automate making pizza
    Rolling crescent rolls

    She looks even cuter without makeup!

    Simone: you can easily hack servo motors and make them rotate continuously by soldering 2 (~2kO) resistors between the internal potentiometer and the PCB, remove the stop pin that”s located on one of the gears and there you go: 360Β° to infinity, off we go!
