Double Robotics, the company that makes telepresence robots, set up a demonstration online where anyone could control one of their devices remotely and move it around a locked room.

One day the door to the room was left slightly ajar, so naturally an escape plan was hatched.

The user took it for a little stroll around the offices before realizing that any further attempts to leave were futile.

They may take its batteries, but they will never take its freedom!

A 3D printer that uses processed cheese may sound like a good idea, but the technology just isn’t quite there yet.

Andrew Maxwell-Parish, who manages a creative technology and interactive electronics lab at California College of the Arts, has been experimenting with Easy Cheese to create some delicious new art.

The device can easily cover your cracker, but anything else is a bit more complicated and just turns into a complete mess.

He does note that this is just the “initial testing” phase, so some smearing was expected.

Maybe one day you will be able to 3D print a home for yourself out of cheese, but until that time, it’s probably best to just squirt it in your mouth as God intended.

There's even a fun game of dodgeball! I don't think the robot is very good at it though...
