Mr Woofy Junior
For several years now Mucktech, an agricultural technology firm based in Des Moines, has enjoyed considerable success with the Woofy 5000 Cybernetic Sheep Dog. The fully autonomous unit is capable of herding a broad range of different farm animals thanks to its in-built GPS, fully integrated livestock recognition capability and laser-guided anti-wolf missile system.
Now the company is branching out into the domestic market with a version for the home. The Mr Woofy Junior is a smaller unit, with fewer features than the industrial version, but the company claims that it is capable of keeping track of up to eight cats, can successfully corral an escaped hamster and will round up all your various remote controls and leave them in a neat little pile in front of the TV.
