Andrew Gray, an engineering graduate student at the University of Florida, created the Bird Buggy, an autonomous vehicle that gets driven around by a trained parrot. Reportedly, this was to help keep his otherwise loud parrot quiet.
Bird Buggy allows my trained parrot to "drive" around the house. When it's time to put the bird away, Bird Buggy is able to dock itself to a base station utilizing a web camera.
