Carlo Bertocchini has a cute little black cat named Elvis. Elvis was
involved in a tragic accident with a
truck and lost the use of his hind legs. So, Carlo created a robotic
mobility platform for his cat so the cat could get around by pawing
of buttons on it to turn left, right or go straight. It took a some
to get the cat to do it, but now the cat spins left and right and goes
forward and purrs as if he likes it. Carlo says, "If Elvis the
robocat could talk, he'd probably thank me for building him his little
robot platform." You've got to see the video. Good
Meanwhile the world is full of wheeley-dogs, whose rear legs are
paralysed or missing. Hooray for these brave canine cyborgs I say! It
really is amazing how they take to their wheeled status, plus amazing
how fast they can go.
What? No I don't have a URL. I also really don't know if there are any
No, I haven't STFV, (Seen The Fine Video) but someone commented that
Comedy Central was the original host of BattleBots, and this video came
from a BattleBot builder. Still, several people said the video looked
like a cat being driven around on an RC platform.
Okay, so I typed "dog with wheels" into Google, and came up with some
stuff for dogs with disabilities:
These last folks do indeed make stuff for animals other than dogs:
"including cats, rabbits, goats, gerbils, rats (yes, rats!), ferrets,
pot-bellied pigs, lemurs, oppossums and more."
No sign of electric wheelchairs for dogs though, sorry.
