Do you ever look at people paid to stand by the side of the road and spin a sign with pity? Time to boost the pity levels, because they're now obsolete. Say hello to the extremely creepy robot replacement.

I don't know about you, but nothing makes me want to go to a "JEWELRY SALE" like the sight of a towering, lifeless woman and a creakily gyrating sign. I've got dystopian sci-fi shoppin' fever! I suppose this particular jewelry store really, really needed to save some money. My only question is—who will maintain the sign-spinning robot? That's right. A human. You can't get rid of us this quickly, robot lady. [Neatorama]
