Las Vegas, Nevada (December 28, 2013)--The next big thing in golf just might have gotten its start in Las Vegas. And it involves golf caddies and a sighting of one of the most infamous creatures in the world. Well, kind of. A Las Vegas company has announced the release of The CaddyTrek Bigfoot which is an electronic robotic caddy that carries a golfer's bag and gear while allowing the player to control the caddy hands free. The Golf pull-cart, 22nd-century style is here. Enter to win a CaddyTrek now via the company's official website. --By Brian Hurlburt.
"These will allow golfers to walk and navigate the course with just a sensor attached to their belt—it's completely handsfree," said FTR Systems Director of Operations, Charlie Palmer. "Golfers will be able to rent the CaddyTrek Bigfoot at their local courses for a minimal cost." Palmer anticipates the product to be available in early 2014.
FTR Systems first released the CaddyTrek in March of 2012. Since then, the company continues to see growing interest and sales in its CaddyTrek product. The company recently published some of the latest upgrades to the CaddyTrek product, including:
-- Better tracking ability due to higher signal strength
-- Multi-unit capability allowing two units to walk side by side
-- Shorter bootup time for the OS
-- Increased top speed
-- Larger 5th Wheel for better stability
-- Lighter and more compact
-- Signal frequency hopping providing better interference resistance
-- Lighter and more compact for easy storage
For golf course owners and managers, the Bigfoot offers less wear and tear on golf courses and faster play than drivable carts, while offering a durable and cost effective rental option for players. FTR Systems, Inc., a tech company specializing in robotics, saw initial success with its CaddyTrek CT2000BA Unit, a consumer product which uses much of the same technology as the new Bigfoot.
