    PiP Uses Facial Recognition To Reunite Lost Pets With Their Owners

    Having your dog or cat run away is pretty traumatic. And even if somebody finds your furry friend, they might not know where to find you. If your pet ends up in a shelter, chances are high that it will be euthanized, so Philip Rooyakkers, the CEO of PiP – The Pet Recognition Company, decided to see if he and his team could use facial recognition instead of tags to more easily report and… Read More

    There are few people on the Internet who don’t enjoy a great animated gif. For some, having conversations only using these animated images is a way of life.

    Sakadachi Nyachi: Sega's New Robot Cat

    In 2006, Sega Toys in Japan started selling a whole series of robotic animals: dogs, hamsters, and puppies, for example.

  • Cat Hammock coffee table: why, you ask? Why not?

    Cat Hammock coffee table: why, you ask? Why not?

    The truth is that cats will make themselves comfortable anywhere. On a bed of coals, or atop Mount Doom, or hurtling through space at 99% of the speed of light, a cat will somehow find a way to curl up and doze off. So the idea of including a special place for your cat to sleep underneath a perfectly good cat bed (in this case a glass coffee table) seems redundant. But let’s be… Read More

  • Google Maps Lets You Peep Into Homes

    Over at BoingBoing, a concerned reader wrote it to let them know what Google Maps is spying into his living room. Recall that Street View feature I talked about earlier today? Great service, but it turns out you can zoom all the way into someone’s living room window. In this case, enough to make out this chick’s cat. So the big question becomes: where do you draw the line… Read More

Sure it’s a gross chore, but it’s nothing difficult. So I’m sure you can anticipate my reaction for this new cat poop accessory. That’s right, in the spirit of LitterMaid comes the Cat… Read More
