Shop ’til you drop with Budgee robotic basket

I’d usually rather watch paint dry than go shopping, but a bit of robotic technology makes the whole prospect far more appealing.

Budgee is a shopping robot that automatically follows you around. No more cart-jockeying, basket-lugging, or even using your recyclable bag.

Just dump your stuff into Budgee and it’ll keep following you. It may run over a few things in the process, but as long as you don’t have to work, who cares?

Shown off recently at RoboBusiness 2013 in Santa Clara, Calif., Budgee was developed by New Jersey-based startup Five Elements Robotics, which plans to launch it on Kickstarter.
