Are you a cat person and a robot person? Good news, meet OpenCat!

You may have seen Boston Dynamic Dogs and the recently released Sony Aibo. They are supper cool but are too expensive to enjoy. I hope to provide some affordable alternatives that have most of their motion capabilities. I’m not saying I can reproduce the precise motions of those robotics giants. I’m just breaking down the barrier from million dollars to hundreds. I don’t expect to send it to battlefield or other challenging realities. I just want to fit this naughty buddy in a clean, smart, yet too quiet house.
