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?
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
