Ordinarily, the question “Say, who’s in the market for a robot cat?” would be rhetorical. But these are not ordinary times, as there is now an actual robot cat for sale in Japan. Above is a commercial for it. It doesn’t seem that creepy, mostly because it looks like a toy, but then again, I haven’t seen its hairballs or litterbox yet. If they can make baby dolls that poop their pants, imagine what a realistic cat facsimile could do. Oh, and there’s also a robot bird, just in case RoboCat malfunctions and feels like killing something. Gotta maintain the natural predator/prey dynamic at all costs. Via Consumerist.
