Robo Catcher in the wry


We're all familiar with the ol' UFO Catcher crane-and-claw game right? Well check the latest Japanese twist to the carny fave: the Robo Catcher. No, it's not some kind of submissive robot action game perv, this one's for the kids. Only this time, the claw has been replaced by what appears to be a Kondo KHR-1HV robot which you control via joystick to grab the booty and drop it down the glory chute. Of course, it's only a matter of time until sacrificial humans replace the stuffed bunny prize. Until then, think of it as a glimpse into our dystopian destiny of robotic servitude. Video after the break.
