The first of its kind, Veebot is a prototype robotic phlebotomist, designed to get all Dracula on your arm. It’s supposed to be as good as a human at finding a vein and drawing your blood.

Feel any better about getting your blood drawn? Yah, me neither.

I love it when robots do new things, but I have to admit I get more than a shadow of terror at the prospect of needle-wielding robots. Blame it on the “Star Wars” torture droid.
