Robotic arm will Digg stories around the clock


Apparently the Japanese man who developed this robotic arm that uses a mouse and keyboard to anonymously send stories to Digg 24 hours a day was arrested by police in Nagasaki. As you can see by the video, there’s a lot of tech involved to do this, while doing it in software couldn’t possibly be as complex.

    This video is so phony on so many levels – do I even have to spell it out?

    I had to double check my RSS feed to make sure it hadn’t switched Make with The Onion. April Fools in July? How does something like this even get posted?

    Scraping the barrel a bit Make:
    Having to cover fake stories is poor.
