Industrial designers demo carnivorous robotic furniture

Call it a twisted sense of humor or practical, self-sustaining technology, but the designers at Auger Loizeau built prototypes for five pieces of furniture that feed off of organic matter to catch household pests. These carnivorous appliances range from a coffee table that captures and digests mice to a fly-paper clock that runs off of decomposing fly corpses.

Nobody will sell these appliances in the near future, but the concept is interesting and should probably lead to robots that do digest and run off of organic matter. We should just give up now.
