At one point or another, who hasn’t fantasised about having a limb replaced with a cyborg alternative, or some kind of robotic upgrade? Sadly, that technology still kind of sucks, so it’s up to your imagination to make that dream come true — that and ThinkGeek’s new sound effect robot slippers.
Thirty bucks gets you a one-size-fits-all pair, and even if you have tiny feet the slipper’s leg cuff should prevent them from falling off when walking. Every time you take a step the slippers play a grinding-clanking sound effect that makes it sound like your legs have been upgraded with the latest in cybernetic enhancements. But only you’ll be aware of the ruse — well, you and anyone who realises robots aren’t made made of plush fabric. [ThinkGeek]
