Robot helps Japanese avoid pollen


Weather News, a Japanese weather company, has created 500 spherical robots that sense pollen content in the air and report back to the mother pollen ship with potential allergen levels in different spots around the world.

The robot then transmits data to mobile phones and online apps, ensuring that the sararimen won’t sneeze into their fifteenth beer before stumbling home to a loveless marriage.

No word on a U.S. launch or the inevitable Japanese pornography that will soon be associated with these pendulous pollen robots.
