This little companion might be the last robotic dog you’ll ever need.
Petoi Bittle is an innovative palm-sized robotic dog designed for play and STEM education. While small, Petoi Bittle is a quite capable robotic pet.
It measures eight inches (20 cm) and weighs less than 10 ounces (280 grams). However, this small robot can also carry a payload of 16 ounces (450 grams) under its belly.
It can play tricks like real animals and has been fine-tuned to have incredible maneuverability for such a small robot. Its assembly is straightforward and the robot comes with plenty of demo modes from GitHub to get you started when purchasing the robot.
With some extra programming and calibration, the robot can run faster than two body lengths per second.
According to the manufacturer, “Bittle makes a perfect tool for learning, teaching, researching, or a surprising gift to impress your family and friends.”
Powered by Arduino, Petoi Bittle is very customizable, too. For example, you can boost its intelligence by mounting a Raspberry Pi or other AI chip to the robot.
