Help identify this robot dog

Help identify this robot dog, win a prize! @ Build Lounge.

Professor Daniel Dennett found this peculiar robot dog in a shop in France. He quickly swiped it up and named it tati, in honor of Jaques Tati a director who incorporated this same whimsical style into a film called Mon Oncle. Daniel really wants to know something about this dog. Who made it? Why? What features did it have? He’s even offering a reward on his site. I’ll include a link at the very end of this article, but at the time I was looking it took forever to load.  Since it looks like it might be under heavy load, I’ve tossed the entire gallery of pictures after the break.  Do you know what this little guy’s story is?

  1. Not entirely sure…

    But it does remind me of something.
    In the Docter Who series, there’s sometimes this ‘guest star’ K-9.

    It’s the first thing that came to mind really.. And either this is the version without a chassis, or somebody (with waaay too much free time on his / her hands) once had an idea to reproduce it.

    Just my guess.
