|"So there are others out there who want a robotic horse! Just the other day I described my ideal robotic horse to my husband. We have The ideal for me would be 2 modes: stationary and moveable. With the stationary we could ride him in place and the robotic horse would imitate the walk, trot , canter, gallop, maybe even jump and do cross country. It would be programable. This could be hooked up to a TV, kind of like some of those new interactive games, maybe even a vitural reality set up.
A stationary one might be easier to build than the moveable one. Now the moveable one we could ride in the yard. Either way the robotic horse could be kept in the house and fed a bottle of WD 40 every now and then. Look at it as an upgrade from those little mechanical riding horses that used to be found outside the stores in the 50's."|

|"Sorry, but if you want a robotic horse, why dont you go out and kill a horse or two for ideas. People would treat living horses like junk and kill them off without a thought."|

|"i think thats a bit harsh because only people who donot have themeans for a real horse would like robotic horse, people will still want living horses as robots cannot give you trust loyalty and love like a liveone can!!!"|

|"are you kidding thats incredibly messed up, leave horses alone let us continue riding real, living, breathing ones!"|

|"i agree, the time has come for a robotic horse. they would be great exercise. even the rich can't afford horses, or didn't you see all the horses being dumped and abandoned in califonia? horses, like purbred dogs are on their way out. maybe we could start a fund."|

|"Oh it would be SOO amazing to have a robot horse! If it were small as a toy, it would be ever more fun. Like a pet mouse!"|

|"THERES THIS TOY PONY CALLED
BUTTERSCOTCH SHE REALLY ACTS LIKE A HORSE BUT DOES NOT WALK OR RUN BUT I MADE A BLUE PRINT OF ONE THAT DID HOPE YOUR IDEA BECOMES REALTY GOOD LUCK"|

|"Robtics are coming a long way. I'd like a robotic horse that could imitate the walk, trot, canter and jumping, slong with the screen like you see on the video games. With all the technology, including 3d technology a smart person could develop a cross country 3 d video programed to go with the riding and the horse. Wish I were that smeart person. Riding is good for balance and exercise but not everyone has the ability to afford the upkeep of a horse.

( 4/11/2012 7:52:06 PM )
|"I have been working on a mechanical,robot horse design for 25 years and now am ready to build just no funds to build the prototype
( 12/4/2012 5:36:04 AM )
|"I have designed this horse to walk, gallop,rear,jump,without a motor for athletic people or with a motor with the ability to control movement to a high level of accuracy and predictability. I have 16 years experience in mechanical physics and studied horse anatomy and movement for more than 25 years.

|"If robotic horses were readily available real horses would eventually die out because no one would want one anymore. I love horses. If I could I'd just make one robot horse for myself it wouldn't be for sale because I want real horses to be around for a looooong long time."|
