Keep Up With Joggobot

A team at RMIT has designed the Joggobot, an autonomous flyer that is meant to encourage activity. It works in companion mode as a friend to hang with or coach mode that pushes you to do more. The device was built out of a drone and reprogrammed to respond to the jogger's shirt then calculate position and distance. A built-in camera can capture the runner's movements. Still being developed, we hope they find a way to turn it into a Marty McFly hoverboard and get back to us.
