PETER SAGAL, HOST:
Right now, panel, it is time for you to answer some questions about this week's news. Maz, a man in Florida has invented a wonderful new robot that can do a daily task for you. What is the task?
MAZ JOBRANI: It holds your hand.
SAGAL: No, I wish. That'd be nice. Something that most people do first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
SAGAL: No, not quite.
JOBRANI: You brush...
SAGAL: It's something you put in in the morning and take out at night.
JOBRANI: Oh, contact lenses.
SAGAL: Yes, exactly. It's a robot for putting on your contact lenses.
(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)
HELEN HONG: What?
(SOUNDBITE OF APPLAUSE SOUND EFFECT)
SAGAL: The idea is you simply bend down, and you put your eye onto this machine, and it...
SAGAL: ...Raises the contact lens...
DULCE SLOAN: No.
SAGAL: ...And places it gently - and then one day, we presume...
SAGAL: ...Quite forcefully - into your eye.
SAGAL: It's a total game-changer for people who both hate to touch their own eyes but don't mind being violently blinded by a machine.
JOBRANI: Is it called the Larry, Curly and Moe bot, where it...
SAGAL: Ow. Ow. Ow.
SAGAL: No, no. The device uses suction cups to insert and remove lenses from the surface...
SAGAL: ...Of your eyeballs - you know, just like in a nightmare.
(SOUNDBITE OF PETER GABRIEL SONG, "IN YOUR EYES")
AUTOMATED VOICE: Love. I get so lost sometimes.
SAGAL: Coming up, our panelists count that vote in our Bluff The Listener game. Call 1-888-WAIT-WAIT to play. We'll be back in a minute with more of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR.
