Wooden Robot Nutcrackers From Suck UK

Suck UK Wooden Robot Nutcrackers, Large and Small

Little known fact: wind-up robots are powered by cracking nuts. Proof of this is clearly seen above as these two Robot Nutcrackers wait for instructions. Who knew the eventual robot uprising would be so delicious?

These beechwood ‘bots are suitable for cracking small hazelnuts and almonds or large walnuts and are available in Small Red or Large Blue. Luckily for us humans, it doesn’t appear they have automatic operation quite yet, so they’ll need to keep us around for a while to keep feeding them.

Kikkerland Robot Measuring Cups

You can’t bake a cake without breaking a few eggs, or so the saying goes. If these Kikkerland Robot Measuring Cups are involved hopefully that’s all that breaks. Consisting of four measuring cups–1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 1 full cup–the robot may look like it disassembles into a friendly kitchen helper, but it might be best to keep a box of cake mix on hand just in case.

I can think of 71% of a reason why the egg industry wouldn’t want to adopt this Egg-Bot Nutrition Label from Thingiverse user dnewman. All that cholesterol may be found in the yolk–which makes egg whites an appealing alternative–but even the Evil Mad Scientist Egg-Bot can’t print on the inside of an egg.

Eat your way through the eventual robot uprising

robot_cookie

The obligatory war with our eventual robot overlords will not be as distasteful as once thought. In fact, quite the opposite: it will be delicious. The Robot Twist And Press Cookie Cutter twists and turns allowing for dozens of robot configurations. The rotating top, middle and bottom sections each feature a corresponding robot part, letting you assemble the exact robot you want. With an army of robots reduced to cookie form, it’s a win-win situation. We get to earn our freedom and eat cookies at the same time.
