Robo pets

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

While pups do not make good Christ­mas gifts, one high-tech pooch is bound to be on many peo­ple’s wish lists this year.

The ro­botic puppy re­quires no train­ing, or food, but like a real-life pet, it flips, sits and chases a ball. The re­mote-con­trolled won­der is one of the more in­ter­est­ing “must-have” prod­ucts on dis­play at G&S Tech-Tron­ics in Alexan­dria.

An­other, more prac­ti­cal, item is the hands-free Blue­tooth hat, notes store owner Ginny Mé­nard. The toque with built-in speak­ers is ideal for a roofer or skier who needs to keep in touch and also re­quires to have both hands free.

Re­mote-con­trolled de­vices are big, points out tore em­ployee Jen­nifer Wat­son, show­ing off a minia­ture drone, with a built-in cam­era. “You can steer it with your phone.”

One model per­mits the op­er­a­tor to swoop around like Bat­man. The What is the num­ber one rea­son peo­ple should buy from you? The num­ber one rea­son peo­ple should buy from Fleuriste L'Oc­ca­sion Florist is be­cause we have qual­ity prod­ucts de­signed with pro­fes­sional style.

If you had a choice, what prod­uct in your store would you like to re­ceive your­self?

The num­ber one prod­uct from our store that I would like to pur­chase my­self is our var­i­ous sized salt lamps. What is your most pop­u­lar prod­uct? Our num­ber one sell­ers at Christ­mas time are our Christ­mas wreaths and Thomas Kin­cade cen­tre­pieces. Why should peo­ple shop lo­cally? Buy­ing lo­cally sup­ports busi­ness and non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions. The less dol­lars spent in the community the less busi­nesses have to give to lo­cal not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions. It keeps the community and ev­ery­one in it vi­able.
