A golden carriage for a golden boy - 3D printing of robotic accessories

Designing and 3D printing a basket for Spot was a side project we started as part of our User Experience in Robotics course work. As our main course project we planned to use Spot to interact with children in outdoor activities. In the beginning we had great difficulties ideating any socially engaging activities for the children because Spot can’t speak nor make any kind of sounds – other than the approximate mimicry of a hair dryer.
