Some say robots will one day rule the world. And when that day comes, we’ll all be willing slaves under their cold, mechanical rule. Until that day arrives though, we can amuse our children with cute little mechanical ponies! The only thing more surreal than the concept of a robot pony is that it’s called the ‘Butterscotch My Furreal Friends Pony’. Now that’s a bigger mouthful than a handful of robot carrots (included). The Butterscotch pony stands about one metre tall, and is covered in ‘lifelike’ pony fur. It responds to touch, such as by whinnying sinisterly when you stroke its mane. It can also be ridden by your little one – or at least kind of. They won’t be riding Butterscotch to school, you’ll be relieved to know, as it only bobs up and down when straddled. It also raises the question of whether mafia gangsters of the future will leave Butterscotch heads in the beds of their enemy’s children.
