RoboDump Office Gag

robodumpThe RoboDump is kind of a robot although it just sits in place and doesn’t move. It’s purpose is to rest on the toilet seat and just make strange toilet type noises.

robodumpThe Robodump is capable of just sitting there for hours. It has a couple of speakers. The left channel points upwards and makes voice effects while the right channel points down in to the toilet and makes other noises.

Quote from the creator… (not me!!!)

I snuck RoboDump into the men’s room at the office. Unfortunately, today turned out to be the day of a board meeting. Whoops! It still went over well; the office was abuzz all morning with gossip about the guy in the bathroom. Several people theorized it was the CFO. The janitor commented to someone in the hallway that he wanted to clean the restroom but “this guy’s been in there all morning.”

I also decided to dress it in businessware to make coworkers less likely to try to talk to it… if it looks like a customer or visiting bigwig, they’ll be less likely to offer help or ask for a courtesy flush.
