Jerry the Dog and his Ball throwing robot…

It took two years to build. Partially because it is complex, partially because it includes IR sensors and other safety features to make sure his son and dog are kept safe. Really! Not only did he build the entire thing for his dog to play with while he was away at work, but he also designed and employed infrared motion detectors to make sure it couldn’t throw the ball when someone was standing in front of it or lower itself and pinch any delicate little kiddy fingers!

The builder asked to keep his name out but had this to say, “Far from being a replacement for me, I was always right there with him enjoying his fun. And with all the troubles that I went through to build the ball machine, I still end up throwing more balls than that the machine could count! In fact, in the three years we’ve had it, Jerry only played with it once when I wasn’t there!”

I guess it’s more of a “Dog Play Enhancement” than any sort of Solo-Dog Toy! Well done guys, keep up the good work!
