Watch a parrot named Pepper drive his own custom Bird Buggy
It's a computer-controlled cart that Pepper can drive with a joystick mounted in front of his perch. It moves forward and back, left and right, has infrared sensors to keep Pepper from hitting walls, and bump sensors that will automatically reverse the buggy if it does manage to collide with something. The body is shaped to hold the day's paper so that Pepper can do his business on the go. And when it's time to recharge, the Bird Buggy can operate autonomously, using a forward-mounted camera to locate and dock with its recharging station.
Without a doubt it beats any toy we'll get this Christmas. Check it out in the video below.
