How about being talked up by an MP3 player and a car battery?

If your walking around NY and feel a little down, you may want to hunt down this little machine at the Rockafeller Center. Its Tom Greaves’ “compliment machine”.

The machine spurts out positive messages and messages of reassurance and encouragement.

The pillar of positiveness delivered such profundities as “You never take the easy way out” and Lauer’s favorite, “You are smarter than your boss.”

The machine contains a speaker, a car battery and an mp3 player that plays recordings of the inventer repeating more than 150 compliments.
