Fido

The Field Integrated Design and Operations, or FIDO, rover is a research prototype for future Mars surface missions planned by NASA. The FIDO rover is similar in function and capabilities to the Mars Exploration Rovers, but on a much smaller scale. It's house-broken and has all of it's shots, so if it follows you home, ask mom and dad to let you keep it.
