I would think the cleaning up after the dog into a disposable bag problem would be one of the challenges. The early versions would not need street crossing capability. I got this idea, in part after reading an article about dogs treating sociable robots similar to humans."

After Apple abandoned me and tens of thousands of other Apple ][ and ][+ owners almost thirty years ago, I have no love for those crooks. But I could get an Ipod Touch with twice as much memory at half the price and several times the battery life. At the $250 price level, the larger screen would have been worth it; at $500, no way.

If an experiment works, something has gone wrong.
