K-9 Wins Trossen Project Contest

Trossen recently announced the winners of their latest Project Contest. DJSures won a 1st place Pleo for creating this autonomous Robot Pet. Chosen because of the use of ingenuity, creativity and overall presentation, K-9 has 3D mapping capability, speech synthesis, adaptable personality depending on the human interaction, obstacle avoidance, a diagnostic LCD screen and can follow a human. We expect the other reason it won the prize was because it was built from scratch. Check out the other award winners which include a Robotic Marionette and an animatronic head.
