This is a concept for a home defense robot which is not your usual tin can on four wheels with a camera mounted for surveillance. It is much more. It is inspired by the balance and range exhibited by the number three.
Sunshine is a highly mobile and sophisticated tripod with arms that punch in triads and a taser to engage any threat that trespasses onto your property. It can be programmed to map your entire house in 3D, spot the zones where it can dock itself to recharge (either through a power outlet or incoming sunlight) and remember the people you know and trust. I am currently exploring the possibilities this rover might further offer.
The name is a tribute to Alice in Chains and is taken from guitarist Jerry Cantrell’s three-legged dog ‘Sunshine’, which was featured on their musical album cover. The theme here was also the number three.
