Need help creating a robot for my pet to play with


My cat is called Mimi and I’m sure she’d like to have a robot mouse to play with (I mean, to hurt). That’s why I’m starting a project around that simple idea.

But there is a catch. I have 0 experience with robotics, and I’m not really interested this part of the project. I am interested in the software / artificial intelligence part. In fact, I’d like the robot to learn what’s the most satisfying behaviour it can have for the cat.

Is there someone, here or somewhere else, who could give me a hint about what kind of programmable robot I should buy / build to start coding asap ?


PS : I think a remote controlled car and a twine may be a good start, but I don’t know how to control them with my computer. That’s the hard part for me.
