Smog-Eating Robots Invade Italy


The residents of three Italian cities will soon have the option of calling a special phone number to summon a smog-eating robot to remove noxious substances from the air. The DustBot robots are the result of eight research teams throughout Europe, and Italy’s Sant’Anna University is the coordination point for the robot dispatches. In addition to the cities of Massa, Pontedera and Peccioli in Italy, Bilbao (Spain) and Orebro (Sweden) will also get their own robots.

Apparently the robot is also capable of physically transporting the waste it collects outside the city centers. I wonder if I can get it to clean the litterbox?
