Although having a pet is one of the most rewarding things you can do, they come with some pretty rubbish responsibilities. One of those, is picking up their poo.
When you see their little doggo face run up to meet you at the door after a long day at work, you might nearly forget about the fact that you're essentially their slave. Nearly.
All that tends to fade away slightly when you have to get the poo bags out and try not to gag as you grab hold of their warm squishy poop.
However, some absolute genius has come up with a device that does all that for you, leaving you with all the good bits of owning a pet and none of that resentment.
The Beetl robot has its own in-built computer and cameras that help it to detect your dog's dirty business, then simply goes straight over to it and uses a claw to scoop it up.
And you never have to come into contact with it either, because it has its own sealed container so that you can dispose of it after.
Did you think the fun ended there? You're wrong. Not only can it detect faeces, it also knows to avoid any other obstacles that might get in its way within a set perimeter, thanks to clever sensors. All you'd need to do is set the perimeter within the area of your garden or so it can wander around and sniff it out.
It can even be connected to a cloud network meaning that the robot can be updated and learn new ways when the company gathers information.
Don't get too excited though. The Beetl is still being tested out, so for now, you are going to have to stick with the traditional way of clearing up after your pet.
And, as well as a poo, another thing we don't wanna be messing around with is bins. I bet you can see where this is going. Yep, robot bins.
An American inventor has gone and solved all of our troubles by making a wheelie bin that takes itself out. The device, called Smartcan, saves you the pain of taking the bins out (or arguing over whose turn it is).
The homeowner can download an app to their phone and then set the day of the week that they want the bins to be taken out on and the device drags them to the curb to be taken away.
What a time to be alive.
