This project is solving the Curiosity at Home challenge.
The Challenge: Bring awareness of the Curiosity Rover’s activities down to earth. Foster a connection between citizens and the rover through software, visualizations, or a remote or app-controlled "home rover" that connects people to Mars and the Mars Rover, educating them and encouraging Mars enthusiasm. The Interpretation: The challenge says, "Foster a connection between citizens and the rover" and "educate them and engourage Mars enthusiasm" Hmm... Citezens? Why not cats? The Solution: We try to educate intellectual cats through an interactive cat toy and encourage their Mars enthusiasm. We aslo try to collaborate with the Planet Dish team to create a Martian Cat Bowl.
