Shadow Caddy - No Tipping Needed
The Shadow Caddy would make any golfer happy as she/he wouldn't have to put up with idle chitchat from a human. It will follow its user around the course without the use of a remote. Instead it follows a transmitter attached to a belt with an object detection system to avoid other golfers or solid objects. The robotic caddy recently won the 2008 People's Choice Award for Australia's Next Big Thing, and we figure this is big bucks as the company is hoping that golf clubs will purchase them and rent them out. Watch for a June debut in Australia and Europe.
