As robot geeks we are constantly plagued at parties, bars, and family get togethers with the question, “But what do the robots do?” Shamefully we have to look at the floor and mumble, “Nothing.” Because the truth is, most robots don’t do much at all except entertain.
Well, some brilliant minded roboticists are learning how to put those robots to work entertaining their pets! Rbotguy from the Trossen Robotics Community posted a video of his awesome cat lasers.
Some of you may also remember this great
video of Jerry dog and his robot ball launcher.
If you don’t have a pet to chase robot lasers or balls,
then just build a robot that actually does the fetching.
