When a smaller washing machine blew a hole through your face and smashed your jaw, you were mad.
But now, for the first time, you’re free to ask what the hell happened.
Robot Buzz, a $300 smart washing machine from San Francisco-based company The Robotic Toolkit, is equipped with a GoPro camera and a voice recorder.
It is also capable of recognizing when a machine is being tampered with and reporting it immediately.
The company plans to make the robot available for purchase through Amazon later this year.
“It’s the first robot to truly take you through the process of getting to know your robot, the way we interact with it and the way it works,” Robotic Product Manager Josh Blaustein told Forbes.
“We wanted to show that you can get the most out of a robot and that we can make a machine that is really useful to you.”
Blaming machines for the blowout is a common refrain among hackers and gadget enthusiasts, but it’s also a myth.
Hackers often claim that a hacking robot can fix a machine’s faults or prevent a machine from blowing up.
In reality, that claim is mostly based on misinformation and poor research.
In an article for Forbes, a team of researchers called The Robot Revolution looked at the actual research behind the idea.
They looked at studies on industrial robots and found that many of them are capable of operating flawlessly and without a problem.
“In reality, the majority of industrial robots are capable, if not quite perfect, of operating as advertised,” The Robot Revival team wrote.
In fact, there are a number of companies that make robots that can be controlled remotely.
Bulk orders for new robots are now available for as little as $500, and those prices have been falling rapidly over the past decade.
The biggest demand is for industrial robots that have the potential to be the future of consumer robots.
But there are plenty of other gadgets that can potentially replace the robot in your life, and they are also becoming more affordable.
For instance, there is a smart-home hub that makes it easy to control appliances, a Bluetooth speaker, a home alarm, and a laundry detergent.
Even a tiny smart thermostat can be configured to automatically adjust temperature, and the company that makes the Smartest Home Thermostat in the World, Smart Home Labs, has a smart thermos that can even help you save energy.
