Fortune Telling India Robots

Scattered across fairs, markets and streets, mostly in southern India, are fortune-telling robots. They come in a range of shapes and sizes.

On the waist or hips are multiple headphone sockets. For only 5 rupees (10 cents) are so, you can plug a pair of worn out headphones into its metallic underpants and listen as it tells your fortune from prerecorded tapes.” w/ photos

Half Full Optimist’s Glass

Still, there’s a lot to be said about being an optimist. For example, if you’re drinking out of our half-full optimist’s glass, your drink is at least partially filled. See, the bottom of the glass doesn’t start until halfway up, so your drink always starts half full.” w/ photos
