Robotic Golf Caddy



These days there are fewer and fewer things to do for pimple-faced teenagers to do during their summer breaks.  Now, the Shadow Caddy is making them obsolete on the golf course as well.

The Shadow Caddy is a fully autonomous golf club carrying cart that trails behind you automatically.  The three-wheeled cart works by following a signal from a transmitter worn on the golfer’s body. Switching the caddy’s setting from “Follow-Me” to “Park” makes sure it never accidentally follows you into a bunker or onto the green.

The Shadow Caddy can function in all weather conditions and moves at a speedy enough clip to keep up with a fast walk. Right now, it’s only available as a rental model rather than a full retail product. Trials are being conducted at four golf courses in Melbourne, Australia.

Not only is the cart cheaper than renting a real person to carry your clubs for you, it’ll never make snide remarks under its breath about how any idiot would’ve known to use a nine iron for that shot.
