Simone Giertz, the self-described Queen of Shitty Robots, has created a selfie photograph sales space out of Lego for her canine Scraps and sure it’s as cute because it sounds. It helps that the canine is a VERY GOOD GIRL and very photogenic.
Giertz used a Lego Mindstorms kit and Lego bricks (the video is sponsored by Lego) to construct the little sales space, and rigged a pedal, distance sensor and circuit board to connect with a dispenser that drops a deal with and snaps a photograph at any time when the canine presses the pedal.
“She goes in there, there’s a little pedal that she can push with her paw, it triggers a camera that triggers a treat dispenser,” Giertz explains. “She gets a treat, I get a photo, everyone’s happy.”
She says she bought the concept for the canine photograph sales space when she was attempting to show Scraps to scroll on a cellphone together with her paw and take pictures of herself. As a result of who amongst us has not tried to get our canine to take selfies?
Giertz is understood for her quirky, largely ineffective robots that not often do what they’re presupposed to however that are fully hilarious. Witness the overzealous lipstick-applying robot, the breakfast machine that will get Cheerios everywhere but into the bowl, the musical instrument made of teeth, and the wake-up machine that encompasses a rubber hand slapping her awake.
Along with constructing a really enjoyable robotic , Giertz confirmed off her new workshop in Los Angeles within the video (with Scraps patiently hanging out and watching). Check out the full video right here.
