I've seen few on Amazon that are intended for human entertainment only. Price tag is the same as Pebby. But Pebby is intended for dogs and cats:

Now sure if I should buy this or go for Sphero that comes in different versions, or Dash Robot. Anybody tried any of them?

Here's Sphero:

Here's Dash:

Would not entice my Raiden whatsoever. Occasionally, he will chase around a flying bug in our house, catch it and then eat it, but that's about it. Give one a try and let us know how it works.

This was like a kickstarter campaign. They exceeded their goal by 1,000%. Note that many of these things NEVER make it to market. While they state the fundraiser will be fulfilled, circumstances may prevail that it can't. See the Coolest Cooler. Raised over $13 million and can't produce them for the price he was quoting people and what people paid for. So, be careful. I hope you get the product. i ordered the One Fast Cat wheel through a similar campaign, and eventually got the wheel.

Thats the risk we take with kickstarters.

They seem to be very communicative to questions and i believe the first round are supposed to be ready for shipment in July so will see what happens.

Mine is still sometime away though
