If you’re unable to skip stones in the water, it’s okay – we now have robots that are capable of doing the stone skipping for us. Some folks have come up with a robot to help raise awareness for the summer activities available at a resort in Sun Valley, Idaho. Called Skippy, the robot can throw skip stones into the lake on your behalf – all you have to do is log on to the Skippy website, sign in (via Facebook or Twitter) and let your robot skip a stone for you!
There seems to be a leader board of some sort but it doesn’t look like you get anything for being on top, but there’s also an unrelated contest on the website for you to win a free trip. Skippy will only be available from July 9-13, so be sure to check it out before it’s taken offline. Check out a video introduction to Skippy above.
