Re: Where are the local tech hype-sters?
This is a perfect solution for an autonomous bot. Unfortunately SF has already banned these from the streets alleging these cause congestion. And we all know that politicians would never admit their decisions are bad. So they see the man poo as means to keep the pavements open (as people walk around the mounds) which is "success" in their books.
Otherwise there would already have been 20 Bay Area startups getting funding for de-pooping bots that are so efficient they catch the lumps before they hit the pavement. Using alien probing tech from neighbouring Nevada there would be no mess at all!
