The rabbit and the Arduino

The man returned to the city to make robots tonight, and I’m left with the rabbit and the Arduino. The rabbit is a live rabbit and unpredictable. The electronics do exactly what you tell them to do. The best education encourages invention, in every discipline. My own education follows this impulse and this thirst.  Language is key; now I want to learn to talk to machines. It is likely, however, that I will never be able to communicate with the rabbit. I know he likes to be scratched gently and chased from room to room, but he will never do what I tell him to do, and I am grateful for that.
Rabbits are good for being rabbits, and nothing less.
