Ruairi Robinson's Live Action/CGI Short 'Blinky™' Makes You Rethink the Roomba

Oscan-nominated Irish animator Ruairi Robinson directs this 13-minute short starring Where the Wild Things Are's Max Records, in which robotic home companionship comes with a price. Don't be fooled by the smiling face: this isn't G-rated.

Macgregor shot this. Literally almost everything he shoots looks like gold. If you've never seen his work I suggest you check it out, you won't be disappointed.
