Photo taken at SM Marikina during happier climes (heard Ondoy didn’t spare the mall), of this bizarre-looking robot attached to a rickshaw – one of the new kiddie attractions in the malls.
The robot is not very intelligent. A kuya charges it with a key to turn it on, like a bump car, and it needs assistance in steering away from walls, other rickshaws, and oncoming human traffic.
Que horror, if you ask me.
Maybe in the future, there’ll be a labor law protecting kid robots. Or maybe not. Still a scary thought.
