Skippy the Robot Skips Stones, and That’s It.

Try as I might, I’ve never been able to skip a stone across water in my life. And while there are some people who possess this skill, I’m not one of them. That’s okay, because it turns out there’s a robot to do my bidding skipping.

Skippy the Robot flings stones perfectly across the surface of water every time. The ‘bot is set up along a lake in Sun Valley, Idaho, and you can actually instruct Skippy to skip a stone across this idyllic scene if you are patient enough to wait in line for it. But even if you don’t want to wait, here’s a little clip of Skippy in action, doing his thing, so you can get the point.

If you’d like to ask Skippy to fling a stone on your behalf, head on over to the appropriately named www.stoneskippingrobot.com.
