Readybot cleans your kitchen, might be single best thing ever invented

We want one. Scratch that: We need one. Check out this ridiculously awesome kitchen-cleaning robot called the Readybot -- if this is what the future of robot enslavement looks like, sign us up. The creators, part of a homebrew group called the Readybot Robot Challenge, are dedicated to finding a breakthrough application for consumer robotics, and team leader Tom Benson says the answer is simple: "We think people want a robot that can clean the kitchen." Uh, yeah. The dishwasher sized Readybot prototype can currently do a little less than half of your common kitchen chores, but Benson says it'll eventually get to 80 percent -- which is about 100 percent more than we're currently doing. Fall in love with the video after the break.
