Flesh eating robots
Either really creepy or really cool. I guess it depends on your state of mind. Machines that catch flies or mice and then digest them for power.
I'd like to see a robotic lawn mower that eats the grass it cuts to supply it's own power. Then deposits little pellets of whatever is left over onto the grass as extra organic matter. That I might buy. If it also brought me cool drinks while I sat under a tree in the shade, I'd have my credit card out now!
A table that eats mice....not so much.
