A Robot That Pats Your Dog and Gives Treats

Patting your dog is fun, but if you have a needy dog, it can become a chore. If only there was a robot that would pat our dogs for us. Fortunately, there is! Engineer James Cochrane has made a machine that will pat your animal and even give them a treat.

He got the idea when he was petting his dog T-Bone one day, and so he built the “World’s First OT Robot People/Pet Affectionator“. It is basically an Arduino Nano based robot that automatically shows Fido some automated affection and offers up a spoonful of kibble, all at the touch of an arcade button embellished with a paw print.

Now we can use technology to ignore our dog like we do our fellow humans and we don’t even need to feel bad about it.
