Props to robot designers for finally coming out with stuff that can make a difference, not that robotic factory arms and mechanized food processing and and and... Whatever man, this thing is cute. It's designed on the principle that many organizations depend on charitable contributions for their operating budgets. Usually it takes legions of volunteers to collect these donations, but in our modern world such tasks can be done with robots just as well. Not to mention that people get annoyed with panhandlers. Enter DON-8r bot, designed by Tim Pryde. There's even videos after the break.
