WHAT IS KANGA-ROLL?
‘Kanga-Roll’ Is a Kangaroo interactive ‘Robo-Pet’ that mimics the hopping motion of a Kangaroo and reacts to a sudden increase in sound, like a clap. With the use of sound sensors, the ‘KangaRoll’ starts and stops moving whenever it hears a clap.
The hopping motion of the 'KangaRoll' is a result of the form of the hind legs. The irregular form of the hind legs move the body of the ‘KangaRoll’ up and down, also moving it forward.
