    Here's a video on a recent robotics startup:



    It features mobility using an Arduino and optionally a Raspberry Pi using laser-cut plywood.

    Looks like @Evo can have more kittens for her collection.

    Saw that in the mail from Arduino. Quite intelligently built (though I have no fascination for cats). The work has taken them quite a long time to complete, I believe.

    No substitute for a real cat. I don't even prefer cats over dogs. Just no substitute for a genuine actual cat. Try giving catnip to that robotic thing. Not so impressive. Where's the fun?

    It’s touted as a STEM resource. Kids can assemble it and program it to do tricks...

    Very cool but not quite there yet in terms of actual cat replacement :biggrin:

    Yeah, can it knock things off of a shelf for no reason?

    Isn't it gruesome? It looks like a skeleton cat?

    But will it chase a Laser pointer?

    No need for litter box and no poo poo to clean
