Robot Cats Pet Companions for Elderly

Research has shown that pets are healthy.  Older people who have pets as companions have less stress, lower blood pressure, and a better quality of life overall.  So now, robot pets are possibly headed for homes.  This article from Live Science goes into detail on a robot cat by Sega Toys that could be the companion that older folks need.  The story is in several web posts including crunchgear.   Make sure and check out these stories.  At least you wouldn’t have to clean the litter box.

  2. Thanks for commenting on RobotNext. I am constantly amazed by the number of robotic animals that have been created. One thing about these robot cats — no allergy problems.

  3. Hi I liked your note, add your site to your bookmarks.

  4. I think robot cats will be a bit of a problem – won’t they rust when you put them out at night ? A robot dog would be a much better idea – plus it could be programmed to take itself for a walk !
