For people unable to have a cat of their own, either because of living arrangement restrictions or allergies, there’s another option: a robot cat. Elephant Robotics has created the metaCat, an artificially intelligent cat that can respond to petting.

Just looking at the metaCat’s eyes make you realize it has that same piercing look as a real cat. The main difference is that you’ll never need to feed or clean a litter box for a metaCat.
