Chinese Pet Feeding Robot


Who feeds your pet, when you are traveling? Researchers at The Chinese University of Hong Kong are developing av ball-like mobile robot called Petsitter, aimed to monitor and feed pets remotely when their owners need to be away from their pets. Petsitter can be remote controlled through the Internet and tranmit real-time images of the pet. When pets become hungry the owner can release food stored in the compartment. The robot can be controlled to play with the pets and play music for them.

But who will feed the pet feeding robot? R&D opportunities for roboticists seem to be endless.
