Tuesday/ here comes Qoobo

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.

The Qoobo cat (pillow with a tail, really) comes in two colors : husky grey or french brown. Is the model wistful? .. or is she thinking: ‘this is really dumb, to imagine this as a cat!’ ?
