Don’t you wish your butter would come to you? Well now it can with the patented Michael and David butter robot! Based on an idea from a TV show, our team set out to see if a similar robot was possible to make in real life. The objective was simple. Can we make a small table sized robot that can bring a person butter using image detection software? With that question in mind we set out buying our components. We wanted to keep it small, so we looked up devices that could do simple image processing and from there we based the robot design off what we thought a small homemade rc car might look like. After continuous testing we found that yes, it is possible to make a small table sized butter robot! Now you won’t even have to get out of your chair to butter your waffles.
