FAST FIVE: Watch Live Demonstration Of Cleaning Robots That Will Displace Thousands Of Jobs

Published by on

In the latest installment of robots plotting a takeover, we set our eyes on a Singapore-based firm called LionsBot International – who has developed an autonomous robot that can sing, rap, wink and even tell jokes while scrubbing floors, reported Yahoo.

Prospective and current clients can rent the robots at a rate of $1,350 to $2,150 per month.

LionsBot said at least six of its clients would deploy the robots early next year.

LionsBot's clients will be able to choose from 13 different types of robots including ones that scrub, mop, vacuum, and sweep across various terrains, effectively eliminating low wage cleaning jobs.

Another version of the robot can also transport up to 1,000 pounds of equipment.
