Party Bot

24, Jul 2006


Party Bot is the ultimate pre-programmable electronic helper and he’s guaranteed to give you a sprinkling of ultra-modernity: he can transport your drinks and ciggies; entertain guests with his blinking eyes and moving ears; and he’ll even do a spot of sweeping up, via his handy underside brushes. In fact, if he could chuck out rowdy guests, he’d be perfect. As it is, he’s the ideal counter to the “robots are rubbish” brigade and is bound to become a cybernetic object of desire amongst slovenly sybarites everywhere.

This Man Friday of the future (“Bot Friday”, maybe?) is great for parties and even better for intimate evenings in, when it’s just you, the TV and a few cold ones. Alright, so Party Bot can’t really do as much as a human helper, but at least he won’t start changing channels, eating your nibbles and pilfering your pilsner.
outlandish control unit

Operated by an outlandish looking infrared remote control unit, this impossibly cute, hyper-intelligent party droid is simple to manoeuvre and even features a demo mode so you can see exactly what he’s capable of right away. Party Bot really is the perfect companion for gadget-loving loafers with a penchant for Jetsons-style TV shows. (Space age apartment and white Lycra leisure suit not included).

The price of the Party Bot is about $75.

If you are interested in buying on of those Party Bots…


The USB Paper Shredder and Letter Opener might prove to be a quite useful thing to have on your desk. It is great for shredding bank receipt, credit card receipt, post-it notes, name card and documents and so on of up to A6 size (half on A4). Just don’t use it to destroy those “Confidential” or “Top Secret” documents… 😉


The thing looks pretty small, and you’ll probably have to empty the shredded documents often (if you use it more often), but this way it won’t take much space on your desk and it is a good to have one of those shredders handy when needed. Although I said USB mini Paper Shredder in the title, the shredder can be powered by the USB port or with 4 standard 1,5-volt AA batteries, or with other words a PC is not required to use the shredder.
