Qoobo Headless Robotic Cat by Yukai Engineering Inc.

Are you feeling lonely and heartbroken? Don’t tell me the reason why you felt that the world has come down on you though. Just don’t. Don’t confine in me cos’ I am no Aunt Agony. However, we are not so cruel as to leave you in the lurch. Instead, we can offer you a remedy we picked up on the Internet and that is petting a feline or canine friend while it chills lazily on your lap. We heard such a simple act seems to be able to ease one’s loneliness and sometimes, even broken heart. We don’t how true is it, but assuming it does have the effect, you have to know a pet is a lifetime of commitment and lots of loose furs. Like a ton of them. But fret not. This is why there is an invention called Qoobo.

Qoobo is the result of technology lending a hand to those in need of a pet’s unconditional love with no strings attached. Qoobo is a robotic cat of sorts, minus the head and limbs. It looks like a giant pebble covered in fur and it has a tail that will respond to your stroking. The furriness offers the similar level of comfort and warmth you will experience with a real cat (or small-sized dog) while the articulated tail mimics the response you will get petting it, so you’d know your love isn’t on a one-way street. Not sure if it will purr like a cat though. It will be nice if it does that.

According to a report, Qoobo will cost around 100 bucks when it hits the market in June 2018 and it will probably do so by leveraging on crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter. Expect this tail-wagging, artificial creature to have an eight-hour battery life, rechargeable by USB (hopefully, the port isn’t cheekily located on the butt, just saying…) and it will be offered in two colors: husky gray and French brown. Skip ahead to the product video to see little Qoobo in action.
