The fortune cat, also known as maneki-neko in Japanese is a common figurine that is believed to bring wealth and prosperity to the owner. From that inspiration, a modern AI fortune cat was made to imitate the movements of a lucky cat's paws. The significance of the right and left raised paw differs with time and place, hence a controlled fortune cat is versatile in its intention. Using Wekinator and machine learning processors, a coded Arduino was used to get each limb moving. Assembling and designing the individual parts to make them come together was done by laser cutting as well.
