Meet Mospeng-kun - Tissue Dispensing Robot

Mospeng-kun, a tissue dispensing robot created by a development and rental company in Japan, has been causing a stir in the techie world and while I know this will never become a must-have item - that is unless you were Born Rich - I am riveted by the idea. Apparently, when Mospeng-kun detects a person nearby, she utters a high-pitched "onegai shimasu" and offers up a pack of tissues. When the tissues are taken, Mospeng-kun thanks the customer with an "arigato gozaimashita" and grabs another tissue pack for the next taker. If only she made chai too.

Apparently, InterRobot’s rental fees start at 100,000 yen ($835) for 5 days, which although decadent doesn't take it out of the running for my birthday entertainment. Although I might have to purposely get a cold in order to make it worth it. According to the company website, Mospeng-kun is capable of gathering information about the people it encounters on the job.

That is so funny. There is absolutely no reason why I need it, but I really want it now. I agree calamari.

So funny and so much technology just to give out packs of tissues. I've never wanted a pack of tissues more than I do now.
