Razer is best known for its bold and highly stylized computers and computer accessories. The vast majority of them are done up in black, with accents of neon green, and maybe some color-changing LEDs. But Razer also makes one product that stands out from the rest, and they’re pink headphones that look like cat ears.
Scientists will tell you that no human or animal can accurately predict an impending earthquake before it starts. However, certain animals are far more sensitive to seismic activities than humans. With that in mind, one seismologist has tossed out a wildly impractical but amusing idea for an early earthquake alert system – using cats.
Over the years, the world of collectible figures has gotten more and more creative, playing with proportion, envisioning characters in cartoony forms, increasing their levels of detail and movement, and much more. And sometimes figures are just plain wackadoo, and I love them for that reason.
Cats are a weird bunch. They’re simultaneously the cutest and most infuriating house pets I’ve ever had. When my last cat wasn’t annoying me by meowing incessantly and trying to claw my eyeballs out at 3am, he was a complete snuggle monster and a joy.
Do you and your cat believe in conspiracy theories? Like that we never landed on the moon because Stanley Kubrick filmed the whole thing on a soundstage? Or that reptiles run our government? Hmmmm. Okay, let’s not count that second one out just yet.
My kids don’t like taking pictures, especially my son. They won’t stand close to each other and the only way I can get pictures of them together is to snap the pics with them unawares. Ol’ Jetty McJetface is the same way.
Check out this fun series of building block cat sculptures from Hong-Kong-based company JEKCA, who makes single-stud bricks which are similar to LEGO. They are purr-fect.
These sculptures are fun for cat lovers. They are available as kits, and they come in various colors and positions.
Every cat owner knows that cats love to get up on your countertops. Some are downright hard to train. My cats keep doing it and we have tried everything. CatNani may be able to help.
It is a little robot that patrols your countertops, and scoots your cat off onto the floor.
A new bit of software has turned up that is both cool and a bit creepy. The software is called pix2pix and it can take a source sketch or image and then build a rough photographic representation of it.
If you own the adorable Cozmo robot, you will soon be able to have it interact with your pets. By that, I mean more than just the getting its tracks clogged with pet hair. An upgrade is scheduled to roll out during the week of December 5th that will add new functionality to this tiny robot, which includes reactions to dog and cats.
I’m not sure what to think of cats. I’m pretty sure as a species they are quite insane. I once saw my brother’s cat jump from the top of a massive pine tree just to spite the dog who had chased it up there.
Cats will sit anywhere and take a nap as long as that area is about the size of their body. They especially love sinks for some reason, which is weird because they hate water. In fact, cats sitting in sinks is an epidemic.
The latest weird thing to come out of Japan is the Meowgaroo Jumpsuit – an outfit that makes the human inside look like a cat, complete with a fuzzy tail and ears on the hood. The hand mitts even have paw prints on them.
