Since cats clearly are not getting enough face time or visibility online, Sony Computer Science Laboratories has come up with a world-changing technological breakthrough for cats: A cat collar that now enables cats to post tweets to Twitter.
Pre-programed with 11 different phrases that your cat can tweet, the (rather bulky?) device attaches to your cat's collar and will let you know what riveting activities your cat is up to throughout the day.
How will the device accurately tweet exactly what your pet is doing, you ask? The device contains a small camera, a GPS and other equipment which tracks activities like eating, sleep and walking. The data is then transmitted through a wireless Bluetooth connection, which automatically posts comments to Twitter based on what the cat is doing, as "This tastes good" when the cat is eating.
I like the concept, but only 11 pre-programmed tweets seems a little limiting. What do you think? Would you try this out with your cat? How about a Twitter Transmitter for Dogs?
