IIRC theres already a Festo Jellyfish post, but fuck it, I say this one isn't a double on the grounds that you can actually find it, and the other one is so poorly written and tagged I;ve only ever found it by accident. theres

Oh man, this robojellyfish thing is amazing. Deep Sea pr0n. It's such a beautiful artwork, straight out of Abyss fantasyland. Sensual movement. I love the undulating tentacles with little flippers on the end. Genius.

Robot pets from Japan: Dream Chick and Dream Cat (somewhat nightmarish, actually). I'm kinda partial though, to the Money Eating Monkey Face, also known as the Face Bank. Now available in new Brick Face. Then there's these cute little Robot Beetles. And though not exactly a pet, this little item is popular with the bubble wrap-popping fetish crowd.

I sometimes like reading the comments on these kinds of youtube posts (yeah I know, despite the effect it has on my neuron count). This is the perfect demonstration of how youtubers inexplicably consider practically anything new and man-made, no matter how benign, to be "terrifying". This is interesting to me because I'm afraid youtube might be closer to a representative cross-section of the public than I'd like to believe.

Could be. IIRC I only found it because I wanted to post something about the jellies and a youtube link came up as a double. Probably best just to pretend I never said anything, as the links are awesome anyhow.

Dear little boy, listen: Don't let them try to crush your brain. Let you go far.

All of this is rad beyond belief. I embrace the technology that will bring us our eventual robotic overlords.
