This little mutt is certainly the alpha of the pack as he boldly steps up to RoboQuad. Watch this nail-biting deathmatch of intelligent robotic design facing off with cute canine aggression - all to familiar 8-bit tunes!

MrScott said: Very humorous. Did you happen to see this related video on the YouTube page for the above movie?

I saw this YouTube movie a few months ago and I find it very uncalled for.  Talk about robot cruelty!

His dog. His robot. His choice.

There's no Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Toys.

The original Toy Story movie made some social commentary on that topic.

I still love those video's. Now only if I could get my dogs do that too, I'd have too give the quad some more defence for him. maybe a lens wiper would work to wipe off the slober, and a laser pointer to distract the puppy and then go for the take down.LOL GWJax

GWJax, To Hack and make mods on robots is a life style and comes natural and not by choice. If a robot has a screw to open it then it must be opened!

Do you think adding a wagging tail to RQ would make it more fun for the pups? Or, for the cats, a twitching tail and some fold-backable ears, combined with a bit of yowling! Deployable catnip is a great idea too...

Deployable catnip... Via CO2 cannon? Mwahahaha

I can just picture it. Kitty attacks RQ, RQ says "Launch Countermeasures!" and blasts a wad of catnip (or several, sequentially from each side) before heading for the hills. 

Watch out, don't step in the anthropomorphization.

yeah, lets call it the 'Catnip Cannon'! I think 12 gauge barrels should be about the right size...

I LOVE the catnip cannon... although the cat I used to have would definitely figure out the trick.  I could see her watching the bag of catnip fly right past her, look back at it, and then back at me - with that look that says "Yeah, right!"  Some cats are really sharp...

If anyone builds the catnip cannon, we just have to see it...

Hey Peter!  I challenge your roboquad to take on your puppy again!  I want to see little RQ kick some K9 butt!
