Qoobo: A Headless, Limbless Robotic Cat Pillow Thing With A Tail That Wags To Interaction

October 9, 2017

These are several shots and a video of Qoobo, a Japanese "healing pillow" that's supposed to help owners relax and feel good by stroking it and making it wag its tail. It resembles a cat with no head or legs, just a tail. That's weird. They're supposed to be available some time next year for around $100 and come in two coats: grey and brown. They're perfect for...actually I'm not sure who they're perfect for, or if I'd want to meet those people.

Keep going for several more shots and a video while I cry into a body pillow like a normal person.

Thanks to Lucinda, who still prefers Teddy Ruxpin. Plus he can read you bedtime stories.

    it's sad when people in japan can't afford to take care of a real cat and are lonely enough to resort to putting a mechanical tail on a pillow :(

    This is awesome. The Japanese are completely insane. I would love to go to Japan to see it first hand.

    this is just depressing though?

    I pray I'm never so lonely and depressed that I need a robotic, decapitated cat for company.

    Though, if that day arrives, it's nice to know they exist...I guess.

  • Or you can just.. you know.. pet a cat or a dog?

    Allergies, apartment rules, etc.

    Also this doesn't shit in the floor or shred the furniture.

  • but it also doesn't looooooooooove!

  • kodama

    Neither does a cat.

    cats will at least pretend in order to manipulate you into giving them food, the pillow can't do that

    $100? I think I might have to get one for my parents because it will freak the hell out of their dog.

    dogs hate robots for a reason. they know what's coming.
