Is your cat addicted to laser pointers? Do they yowl and cry when there is no red dot in sight? Are you tired of your arm falling asleep from the effort of constantly waving something around, for hours on end, just to keep your feline friend entertained? Well, the CatBot (pictured above) might just be the solution you’re looking for!
Simply put, the CatBot is an autonomous laser toy for cats: it does the laser pointing for you. Before you start searching for vendors, however, perhaps I should mention that the CatBot was invented by some guy named joe – using “an arduino, two servos and a laser” – and posted to the website Instructables. Yes, you too can have a laser-wielding robot… but you have to build it first. Check out the step-by-step process here.
