Gigglebit: Spectacular robot fails

22 Jul 2014273 Views

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? What candidate has the best IT skills for this job, and what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today, we present a small collection of spectacular – and hilarious – robot fails, via the Atrocious Mediocrity blog on Tumblr. We have faith these inventions will be perfected one day.
