Does your cat need entertainment? Why not? You can check out the sheer number of toys that are available in pet stores for both felines and canines alike, but most of the time, those happen to be old school toys that do not really have plenty of technology infused within. With this Kickstarter project that is known as Mousr, your cat will most probably find a new way of being entertained. This is a smart robot for cats, where it will make use of the power of technology in order to keep your cat entertained whenever you are not around.
We already have video evidence of cats catching rides on Roombas, so we know cats like robots. It was only a matter of time before the feline crowd got a robot of its very own. The Mousr from Petronics on Kickstarter is a sensor-laden bot built for high-tech cat entertainment. Mousr is quite a bit different from the battery-operated toys you might find at pet shop. Even the fanciest of those tend to have a very limited repertoire of movements. Mousr is aiming to be light-years beyond that. The little mouse-shaped bot detects your cat’s approach from any direction and reacts to being hunted by trying to escape. It has a hidden speaker to add an audio element to the chase. The Petronics team behind Mousr is working on developing a full-on AI system for the gadget so it can learn and adapt to you cat’s style of play.
