My in-laws need this. Their dog would fetch without cease if they let him, but everyone is so sick of throwing his toys that he is pretty much completely ignored and neglected. Poor dog.

That video is awesome. My poor dumb dogs. All they would do with that machine is chew on it.

My dog would also love that machine. That guy should sell them.

That is awesome! My dog would have gotten bored though...he had to have 2 balls thrown at once.

But shouldn't this be "Why Dogs Love Engineers" instead?

I'm waiting for the much larger version which launches my cat across the room.
Time to remember all the engineering I used to know...

Do they have one that launches toy mice across the room? Save me from doing it for my cats...

You mean yours don't chase all of the imaginary mice around?

The device in the OP is known among us nerds as a "neat hack."

All you need is a laser pointer.

It would be flat-out abusive to put such a pointer on a gimbal that randomly points it around the floor with a cat in the room. I've had cat and a laser, and I always got tired of pointing the laser around way before the cat got tired of chasing and attacking the dot.

But it's really funny to see a cat swipe at a red glistening dot on the floor, only for the dot to show up on top of the paw.
