Feed the dog

A video has been posted of a new NXT device that drops treats into a bowl for a dog when it receives a text message or IM message from a phone. Supposedly you'll be able to IM a message, but I imagine that would be one fat dog if the public were given control :)

Watch the video here.

Speaking of using NXT in other contexts, an artist in Seattle created a project that uses a NXT robot as part of an installation in a gallery.

The project scans Google headlines for news of people being killed and then uses a NXT robot to drop a ball into the gallery for each occurrence.

Yeah, I remember seeing this... thought it was a bit dark, but it is a valid creation.
