Motorized Fish Bowl Allows Pets To Explore Beyond Its Glass Walls [Video]
Studio Diip created a mini go cart for fish that is controlled by the direction of its swimming.
Studio Diip, a company that designs and develops products that use image recognition technology, created a small motorized go-cart for fish — allowing the fish to explore the world outside its tank.
The self-driving car or the “Fish On Wheels” is constructed with a standard web cam mounted on top of the tank, a Beagleboard, and a carriage controlled by Arduino. The car is controlled by the movement of the fish; the car goes to wherever direction the fish is swimming. Via computer vision, the car detects the position of the fish and sends commands to the Arduino to move the car into that direction.
According to the company’s website, they hope that Fish On Wheels will encourage more projects geared towards enhanced pet mobility.
Watch the Fish On Wheels in action below.
