If you love cats but can’t have one due to an allergy or other reasons, we’ve found a perfect idea for you! Qoobo by Yukai Engineering is a robotic cushion with a tail intended to provide a sense of comfort to users.
When caressed, the plushy cushion waves gently. When rubbed, it swings playfully. The cushion also wags to say hello to its owners. The interactive pillow is designed to provide comforting communication that warms your heart the way animals do. The robotic pillow makes users feel as though they are interacting with live animals and provides them with a sense of comfort, or ‘tail therapy’.
The company selected different materials for various parts of the robot to enhance the movements and the tail’s appearance. They also made it durable to allow for use in various environments. The engineers hope to develop the technology further, by continuing their study on the animal’s tail movements to offer even more realistic experiences. Get this cute cat-like pillow as soon as possible to cuddle up cozily this winter!
