CuteBitz is offering the only salt and pepper pots a self-respecting geek should let grace their dinner table with the launch of the Salt & Pepper Robot Shakers.

As well as offering the immensely useful function of holding your seasoning, the robot's wind-up mechanism means you can set them off to the opposite end of the table to help a fellow diner with their seasoning needs.

Taking "pass the salt" from a chore to fun, the table-top robots are on sale now from CuteBitz for £18.95 for the pair.
