Cats love toys, but they love stalking live prey even more. That’s because live prey can move in unpredictable ways and struggle when caught, which ordinary cat toys can never do. Unless, of course, you buy your cat an artificially intelligent robot mouse.

The Mousr, a super-smart cat toy has a time-of-flight sensor, a real-time operating system in a custom-built microcontroller, and A.I. programming all working on concert to convince your cat that it’s a mouse and not a tiny robot. Mousr can map its surroundings — and it even initiates a struggle protocol when it feels trapped by its predator.

Mouse even receive a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to study indoor navigation in robotics. By supporting Mouse, you’re giving your cat a new toy and supporting science at the same time.
