Sega Toy's Robot Cat 'Dream Cat Venus'

Robot Trends

A new robotic pet toy from Sega Toys is now on the market, called 'Dream Cat Venus,' the second in what looks like a an emerging robot pet toy line.

The robot cat is able to respond to outward stimuli or lack of human stimuli like a real cat does; purring when you pet it, and protesting with noises if you don't. Of course you don't have to worry about feeding, water or changing cat litter either.

While this is a toy cat robot, researchers at Tohoku University's Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer in Japan are behind the inner workings of the robot pet, and that's understandable, as they've been working on robots to use with the elderly and terminally ill patients for some time.

Sego Toys has released a dog robot named 'Dream Dog DX' in the past, and it makes you wonder if there will be further animal robots in the future.
