Does Your Magazine Subscription Come With a Robot?


DeAgostini, the Italian publisher that has sold over $80 million worth of DIY robot-y magazine awesomeness in Japan alone, certainly thinks it should.

Sure, the way that Robi the robot's "assembling parts were distributed in a weekly magazine over the course of 70 issues demonstrates a new level of ingenuity and a new way to promote print publications."

But it also demonstrates that these robots, led by Tomotaka Takahashi, have a new way to infiltrate our homes and prepare for their uprising.

I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords. Especially if they come bearing interesting reading material.
