Catterbox Translates your Cat’s Meows

Catterbox the translating cat collar is definitely our product OTD

What if your cat could actually talk? Presenting Catterbox, an amazing cat collar innovation that translates the meows and sounds of your beloved feline into clear English words and sentences. The designers of the Catterbox have analysed hundreds of sound samples produced by cats to help the collar translate as accurately as possible for it seems cats do not ‘meow’ amongst each other, but only to communicate with humans. Hmmm slightly sceptical here but hey, whatever blows your hair back – if you’re the type who wants your cat to start ranting day and night, then this is definitely for you. Happy Friday, everyone! 🙂

Tomba Lobos – Play Dough Faces

Tomba Lobos creates unique disfigured portraits using play dough

We love the work of photographer and graphic designer Tomba Lobos who has created an interesting set of portraits, disfiguring his models with a clever mix of flesh coloured play dough and digital retouching. A slightly unsettling yet original and unique series that explores the boundaries of classic photography and basic sculpting and digital versus analogue image manipulation.

Tilt Brush is an exciting new application by Google that uses virtual reality to paint in 3D. This combination of art and technology allows you to create paintings in a three dimensional environment, through brushes of course, using unlikely materials such as fire, stars, or snowflakes – below is a great demo vid featuring street artists Faith47 and Tristan Eaton trying it out. The new Tilt Brush app is currently available for the HTC Vive headset. This is so very awesome!! 🙂

Hanson Robotics Unleash Creepy Robot Sofia

Hanson Robotics unveil an ultra-realistic yet disturbing humanoid robot

Presenting Sofia, an ultra-realistic female humanoid robot, designed by Hanson Robotics, who is capable of seamless interaction with humans using a speech synthesis system, cameras in her eyes, and very realistic motorised facial expressions. Sofia’s able to comprehend, learn and interact with her environment and is probably the most advanced humanoid robot created to date, and most definitely the creepiest…who will, we have no doubt, help destroy us all in the end 😉 lol
