Parrot Drives a Car – Video April 17, 2013

Posted by Andrew in : African Grey,Video , trackback

Andrew Gray of Florida built a robotic car for his African Gray named Pepper, in a effort to keep him from screaming.

After trying other ideas that only helped for a short time, like a sound-activated water spray, he built what he calls “The Bird Buggy”


(Let me note that I find it interesting that his last name is Gray and Pepper is an african grey parrot.  Just coincidence, I’m sure.)

The vehicle allows Pepper to follow people around the house and the yard to get the company he enjoys.

Be sure to watch the video to see Pepper and the car in action!

That's so cool. So does the parrot actually control the robocar?
