    Actually, that has prompted a change of plan... I'll need to order four, now.
    I'm going to remodel the front of my house, and have two more of these robo-dogs sat outside wearing appropriate costumes:

    Ha!

    My house is currently guarded by a crow. Woke up this morning to find the guard crow had a giant fish. Long story. I have a garage full of crows and fish which appeared around the house.

    Wait what? Crows roosting in your garage brought fish into your house?

    I honestly expected these to cost more, OK not stricly affordable but wow this kind of technology within reach of even some is impressive.

    74k for the robot but if you add all the options it easily touches $250k, will be interesting to see who buys these and what for. Would love one to tinker with
