MarsCat is the Purrfect Bionic Pet Cat, Screen Capture/Elephant Robotics
Developed by Elephant Robotics, the MarsCat is the world’s first bionic pet cat. MarsCat is an autonomous robotic pet designed to mimic a real cat using artificial intelligence:
“It is fully responsive and has sensitive interactions. It can feel your touch, hear your voice, see your face and play with toys. Every MarsCat is unique from its eyes, body to personality, its personality will change according to the way you pet it. With powerful quad-core Raspberry PI, you can also program it easily and give it endless possibilities.”
MarsCat walks, runs, sleeps, sits, stretches, bites nails, kneads and even digs litter without the waste. It shows various emotions by different meows or gestures. In fact, MarsCat has 6 built in characters which can be changed. Its personalities are reflected when MarsCat interacts with you:
“MarsCat is built to allow you to shape its personalities. More interactions with MarsCat will impel it to be more close to you. More conversations with MarsCat will impel it to meow to you often. Every time you touch it, talk to it or even let it see you, will change its personality.”
The MarsCat App fully permits customizing your robotic feline friend.
If you are allergic to felines but still love cats, the MarsCat is a feasible alternative to a real cat. Also Marscat can take care itself by auto-charging itself and can entertain itself. Cat litter changing and cleaning is no longer required, as well as buying cat food and supplies.
MarsCat is open source and programmable:
“You can program MarsCat easily and make it with endless possibilities. With powerful quad-core Raspberry Pi, you can create your own applications. MarsCat is also an ideal choice for education, research and commerce.”
MarsCatAn Open SDK allows users to access a huge amount of sensors and actuators to create your own cat applications. Protocol and library are open-source embedded in Raspberry PI.
