This Cat-Inspired Robot From Japan Can Help To Cope With Anxiety

If you are a very busy member of our modern society, Qoobo might be exactly what you need.

Qoobo is a round fluffy pillow with a realistic cat tail that moves when the cushion is being petted. This unique robot pet was created by “Yukai Engineering” from Japan. The company presents Qoobo as a therapy or relaxation robot cat and markets it mainly for young people living alone, children, and the elderly. The creators say that having an animal on your lap has healing qualities and that Qoobo with its soft cat fur and responsiveness to touch is the next best thing if you can’t have a real pet animal.

Would you enjoy having this interactive cat pillow at your home?

I like the idea and can see it could be a comfort for people with allergies or other situations that keep them from enjoying a pet.

Also two other great things! They don't need the constant care or aren't jerks no matter how kind you are to them!

Cute, but I prefer my cats to be real :) definitely an option though, if someone can't keep one for whatever reason
