Rocky the Robotic Squirrel

RockyRocky is a robotic squirrel used to study squirrel behavior. Sarah Partan, an assistant professor at Hampshire college,  hopes to uncover squirrel communication clues by using Rocky.

Rocky is remote controlled via a computer. He can moves his tail and make realistic squirrel noise.

Our only question is why and whats next? A robotic Bullwinkle?
