Joggobot is a research project from the Exertion Games Lab that explores how joggers will enjoy jogging with flying robots as companions in order to make the exercise activity more engaging, drawing from computer game ideas. The company says that they “believe that in the future, exertion activities will become a new experience, involving interactions with autonomous embodied systems. Our vision is Joggobot, an autonomous flying quadcopter that exemplifies our thinking about the combination of robotics and physical exercise.”
Next up will be a flying television for those long runs. Maybe a cappuccino machine too.
