you know those crane arcade machines where you have this overhead hook that grabs stuff? (pic below)
wouldnt it be cooler if you could use a biped robot, let it grab a cute little stuffed bunny like a murderous robot would, then drop it down the chute?
this is the idea of the 'robo catcher'
they just need to program it to 'accidently' drop everything it picks up . . .
