DON-8r is unlike other robots. Pronounced as ‘donator’, it is a miniature robot being capable of traveling in public places to collect coins from fellow passers-by. The main source of power for the robot to keep moving is the donation that each passers-by offer. DON-8r goes directly towards a chosen charity trust. Taking its inspiration from the increasingly pessimistic attitude that several people have towards on-the-street charitable trust workers, DON-8r helps raise funds via cheering playful and compassionate support from unfamiliar people and passers-by. In recent times, DON-8r has been impressing shoppers in Dundee, Scotland for raising money as well as creating awareness for Dundee Science Centre. This brilliant robot, designed to be re-branded in order to suit various charities, offers an exclusive platform for charities to connect with people of the community in a fun and unforgettable manner.
