Skippy, the stone-skipping robot, is really good at skipping stones. He's probably better than you. Skippy scoffs at your lazy days by the lake, biding your time until summer's end.

Thanks to the internet, you can control Skippy in real time (in the daylight) and watch him slowly fill an Idaho pond, one rock at a time. This is a limited engagement that ends on July 13.
