Ubiko Robot Smoke Detector



The incredibly adorable humano-kitty Ubiko robot is not only fabulously cute and available for rent, but has been upgraded to work as a roving smoke detector. When she detects smoke or ash smells, she’s programmed to notify an authority figure, though presumably advanced models could be equipped with fire extinguishers in order to create hilarious situations involving secret smokers.
