Shopping cart with robot legs and tendrils of flame

These disembodied, cart-pushing robot legs highlight the plight of the homeless. Their bursting into flames is said to be unintentional – but to me, it just means that they especially highlight the plight of the homeless in South London. Walking Shopping Cart [GizmoGarden via Make and Gizmodo]

    As poignant as the lack of comments on this reflect on views of homeless is, I have too. Excellent. Groovy flames too :D

    I wonder if homeless will still be blamed for their plight and ignored when it’s people you know (re: housing price ‘adjustment’ in America)
