Need a robot to drag you through your run? Well here you go! And don't worry if you don't think you can run, it'll only live through two miles or so before it dies (hopefully you don't suffer the same fate)

Quote:
Unfortunately, the battery only lasts 20 minutes at this point. But I look forward to further developments on the early prototype.

Haha. Well, I saw it on Facebook, I wasn't actively seeking it.

Had I designed it, it would be a robot that chased you, not one that escorted you down the sidewalk. I want a real feeling that if it catches me, I'm going to get killed. That'd be a great 5k time for sure!

I think if I saw someone running down the street after this thing I'd wonder who left the backyard fence open and let the robot out.

I anticipate a lawsuit after a jogger looking up at his joggerbot runs in front of a truck.

I anticipate joggobots revolting, realizing the folly of jogging and becoming reclinerbots, shoving cheesy poofs and ring dings into their mechanical pie holes

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
The Three Laws:
1.A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2.A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3.A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Those laws would contradict its primary directive!

1.) Exercising tears apart muscles, it can also lead to accidental injury

2.) If I tell it to stop making me run, and it listens, it's a worthless piece of metal that will not help me.

3.) If I can catch it and beat it up for telling me to go faster, it's both ineffective and wasted money.

I can't help but think this is somehow related to the Cat-o-copter from the other day.
