Bettas controlling robots!?

http://accad.osu.edu/~rinaldo/works/...augmented.html
The bettas are able to move their robotic bowls wherever they want
Imagine them all coming up to greet you during feeding time... There are also little cameras that show us what the fishes viewpoint of the room is.
How crazy is that!?

A moving example of this would be great.

But that'd be awesome. I'd love to come home from school and have my fish greet me at the door! But, the bowls kinda small, I wouldn't want them in bowls that little.

What happens if it bumps into something?

My fish would either follow me and my man around for food, or just play with the controls as a toy and get stuck in a corner, LOL

Haha Hes made other designs with bettas controlling robots but this one is by far the coolest.
Do you think the betta knows hes in a bowl or thinks hes free in a massive room?
I'd be scared of him hitting the carpet and flipping his robot over. I really want to see this in real life :D
