It’s World Mental Health Day today. I see a Japanese company is marketing a 2-lb robotic cat-pillow-thing called Qoobo. The sensation of stroking the furry fabric, and the wagging ‘tail’ reaction is going to have a soothing effect, and make the day’s stress go away, they promise. Well. Granted : no kitty litter box is good, but no cute cat face and paws, and no ears to tickle – no good.
