So, after watching this video (by the German band "Wir sind Helden"), here’s my question to anyone out there who owns a Pleo, Paro, Roomba, etc… What do you do (or what will you do) when your robot breaks or becomes obsolete or outdated? Will you unceremoniously toss it in the trash recycling? Keep it around in a place of honor?

Or…

Harvest its parts to make a zombie frankenbot?

Yeah, I thought so.


He's got a point. With more than half of all Roomba's having a name, what do people do with broken robots? Surely you wouldn't simply toss your best friend... ?

This video makes me extremely sad.... I guess it shouldn't though...

As for my robots, I think I could through them out if they are Roombas but maybe not Pleos, not very fair is it... :)
