I've both seen and admired everyones Tardis concepts, and it got me wondering... Has anyone thought of a "new" robotic companion? I have been working on a cat design, and I was wondering if anyone else has had an idea they were working on?

The only ones I could come up with were K-10(kitten),Kit-E, and  the one I'm going with right now, K@.

I love the body although personaly I'd smooth out the sides and make the head a bit less geometric but great start, love the rollerball

I remember a cartoon in a DWM some years ago, with the Sixth Doctor bemoaning the loss of K-9 (with Peri, I think it was) when K-9 stayed behind with Romana. So, he created a new robotic companion to replace K-9, and in the last frame it showed a robotic cat with the Doctor saying something like "I think I'll call him, Kit-10."

(And if you don't mind my saying so, your idea looks like a cross between the Thundertank from "Thundercats" and the Moon Hopper from "UFO".) Brilliant idea, I think.

Thank you, Dino.
I hadn't thought of it that way, but yes, it does look like a cross. I wonder if that time period has influenced my creativity...interesting.
I have to say, you gents have givien me some real food for thought. Thank you. Please, keep it coming...

OK team let's all dig through our old DWM's and find that cartoon! ;D

Timefreak...your kitty is COOL 8) she's one beautiful Brachycephalic beastie.  ;D
What would the Doctor do?

Why, thank you dear lady! I'm enjoying the comments, as it helps me focus my thoughts and creativity so that I don't drive myself insane "bouncing" from one topic to another with no apparent transition...
