The Stanford Robotics Club students built a 10 lb Robot Dog and it got me wondering – maybe a Robot Dog is just as good (if not, better) than the real thing? Totally joking, Pepper… kind of.
There are so many wonderful things about having a real-life dog of our own, right? Do I sound unsure? That’s because Robo Dog made me forget all the wonderful things about my dog, Pepper (built-in best friend, my get out and walk-motivator and my most trusted protector) and got me thinking of all the perks that would come with owning a Robo-Dog!
Just to name a few Robot Dog vs. Real Dog perks:
- No Dog Hair
- No Vet Visits
- No Need to Pick Up Dog Poop
- Training is Included
Shall I go on?
Stanford students are hoping their baseline doggo robot system will be used to create Robo-Dogs that would be capable of even more than they can imagine – like Search & Rescue.
Did I mention it can even jump with joy upon your return home? Robot Dog is pretty cool and cute – but no matter how many bullet points I come up with, I still think having a real dog with real dog hair is hard to beat.
