Robot recycles pet poop
Meet “Sum,” Tohoku Kankyo’s new robot trashcan that will take your old food and pet poop and turn it into eco-friendly compost:
Using some sort of fancy bio substance that breaks down garbage and takes away smelliness, the Sum can process about 600 grams of poop and/or food each day.
They retail for about $900, and require “bio” refills every 4 months or so.
