Robo-Kitty: Sega Toys unveils the Dream Cat Venus

Sega Toys, makers of the Dream Dog DX, recently took the wraps off its latest robotic pet called the Dream Cat Venus. The realistic cat responds to tactile and audio stimuli thanks to help from researchers at Tohoku University's Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer in Japan.

In addition to movement in response to its owner, the robo-kitty will also utter purrs when comforted and sounds of displeasure when neglected. The sometimes creepy, sometimes cute robotic cat will cost 10,500 yen ($110) and can be seen in action here.
