Hammacher Schlemmer’s Advanced Robotic Dog Sitter

This is the advanced robotic companion that cares for a canine when its owner is away. Optical and audio sensors on the robot’s exterior help it learn your pet’s body language, different barks, and unique behaviors and anticipate its needs.

Watch Advanced Robotic Dog Sitter in action It will automatically take a dog for a leisurely 5-, 10-, or 15-minute walk at pre-set times, using its on-board GPS tracking to safely navigate a backyard or neighborhood.

The robot senses when a dog is feeling restless and keeps him entertained and energized with games of disc or ball fetch, tug of war, and hide-and-seek.

Brilliant – can it also give belly rubs?
