Rab•bot is a hopping lagomorphic robot that mimics the core behavior of the small prey animal it is inspired by. Its design is informed by careful observation of the morphology and movement unique to this species. As a prey animal, its dominant behavior is fleeing danger. Rab•bot hops into action when an infrared sensor mounted on its posterior is triggered.
