This product – a yr previous gadget that I’ve by no means seen earlier than however now love – is called BigClapper and it’s principally an orb with a humorous face and large white palms. When you set it up in a location it would yell and clap endlessly, a form of robotic tummler that may choose up your spirits whereas it drains your will to reside.
The product, discovered by RobotStart, is wildly manic. BigClapper can be utilized at workplaces! In entrance of shops! At events! It can clap as folks stroll by, encouraging them to return into your store! It is pink! It has palms!
While it’s not but Alexa appropriate, the BigClapper seems to be to be a mannequin of future human-computer interplay. After all what’s extra pure than an enormous pink face howling at you on the road whereas it claps maniacally in an effort to promote you extra merchandise.
