The Most Fun or Useless Robot Applications?

Doing marketing in the robotic world is a tough business. In fact, I sometime feel that robots are doing boring, repeatable operations that are not that impressive in general. Yet robot manufacturers are trying to find the cutting edge of marketing to demonstrate the precision and speed of their robots by doing high voltage demos. Even if the demos are totally useless in terms of the manufacturing process, they are pretty cool to watch. Also they do demonstrate important features about the robots and I bet the marketing gurus have had a lot of fun creating them.
