The Mobot Water Bottle & Roller seems to pack a lot of desirable features:
- Made of recycled stainless steel
- Built-in massage tool
OHMIGOD, EVERYONE, RUN! IT’S A GRENADE!!!
Oh, sorry, false alarm. My eyes are getting old, and I should probably get my vision prescription updated. But is it just me, or does that water bottle look like something Rambo would chuck at an enemy tank?
Seriously, we live in a time when everyone’s on edge, where we can’t bring backpacks into a football stadium anymore. Indeed, you can’t even bring in any bag that’s not clear and of an exact size and material.
And don’t forget that the TSA views even basic bottled water as the enemy.
Now imagine trying to bring this newfangled bottle anywhere, even if it’s completely empty. Even the name is an issue: “No, officer, that’s not an explosive device — it’s a Mobot.”
So as cool as this product is, I think I’ll stick with my Hello Kitty Sippy Cup.
