"Signature required " robotic arm

Get it delivered

Some couriers steadfastly refuse to leave a consignment despite being told via a video intercom to do so.

So BorgCo cyberneticists have designed and implemented a compact robotic arm, capable of grasping a pen or stylus, that can reliably reproduce a signature on a form, card, or touchscreen.

The device comes in a compact, weatherproof enclosure that can be quickly attached to a suitable wall, next to the door.

That is all.

       Easily bakable, but I don't think it would sell enough units to pay the patent application fee.

       Surely you can ask the delivery driver to put in a little effort? Just fix a pen or stylus to a wall bracket, and ask the driver to move the little signature pad underneath it, opposite to your signature.

       "Delivery driver" and "effort" are mutually exclusive...

       Seems to me such a device could wield something other than a pen to dismiss a delivery driver. Or salespeople. Or religious proselytizers.   

       With the right accessory kit, this could be a much better seller.

       You mean the one that comes with the fraudulent mortgage papers, will, credit card applications, and power of attorney documents?

       It seems like it could do more than that...... like operate a water pistol when politicians come around canvasing for votes etc.... {+} note lacy brackets, just the way you like them! ha

       + could of course be integrated into something like the Ring video phone door bell app

       Perhaps you would like to try our T-1000 liquid metal Terminator version ?
