ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
No one will suspect that your well-behaved dog is actually a robot! Full build instructions included.

If it doesn’t poo, it’s not a dog. Unless it’s electric poo…?
/rules rewrite needed
“Electric Poo?” I’m totally naming my band that!
Hey buddy, don’t take this the wrong way but that’s one ugly mutt you got there!
Page 496? That’s some magazine.
I guess that you don’t read Vogue. The September issue was over 900 pages.
Yikes! Also probably the only magazine in which readers don’t complain about the 80% ad content.
EDIT: To be honest, I enjoy leafing through all those fashion ads.
In pretty much any kind of design magazine, the ads are at least as interesting as the articles.
But… can it love me?
Is he housebroken or will he be leaving little batteries all over the floor?
Then he probably comes back after a while and eats those little batteries.
I prefer the british version
Good show! I was actually was going to post that if someone had not already done it… but I believe in the happy mutants that haunt these comments. You guys always come through!
That kid looks happy that he’s found a new dog to take apart.
Right?! That “child” is horrifying.
I think he suspects…
there’s so much to be suspicious of!
I think he might be electrical, too. And look at that “women’s” gesticulation.
That’s a flapper nun blessing Our Electric Pooch in order to banish the demon which has obviously possessed the child. The man, as usual, is clueless.
Little dude’s like a cross between Angus Young and Frank Sinatra.
Do android dream of electric dogs?
You mean that 3 wheeled green box with a black line drawing on the front that has vague references to a canine face isn’t a dog?!
Wow, do I feel stupid!
Color me unimpressed…
This primitive electric dog of 1929 is clearly no match for the ATOMIC DOG.
I’m not sure the magnetic steering mechanism (I assume the cane has a magnet) would work if it relies on a “sheet iron magnetic shield.” That is a classic feature of perpetual motion machines.
that shield is there to prevent the flux from the motor and solenoid and relays from deflecting the needles.
See, if someone were to make this dog nowadays it would be audrino powered and use cameras to track the end of the cane. There’s something to be said for analog simplicity.
