There’s no denying that pet owners usually talk to their furry companions. Although they can’t talk back, it’s good to have someone who will listen and not judge. But what if your cat can actually talk back? Wouldn’t that be awesome?
One can only imagine what a cat’s meow means. Cat owners, after having spent many years taking care of the feline, can assume what every sound a cat makes means. There’s the meow for “I’m hungry,” or “I need to go use the litter box.” But with Catterbox, the assumptions may soon be put to an end.
Introducing the Temptations Catterbox, the “world’s first talking cat collar.”
It allows cat owners to understand what a cat may be saying when it’s meowing.
This is how awesome the device can be.
The guys at Temptations Lab and two London-based agencies are behind this device.
Cats have always been enigmatic and it’s hard to read what’s going on in their heads. But with the talking cat collar, cat owners will no longer have that problem. Temptations global brand director Pete Simmons explained to Adweek why they’ve come up with this device.
“We’re fascinated by cats, so we set out on a mission to get to know them better. Through research, we learned that an adult cat’s meow is their way to communicate with humans and, by investing in this prototype device, we can start to improve understanding between them both—giving cats a voice for the very first time.
The Temptations Catterbox is still a prototype.
According to creative agency adam&eveDDB’s spokesperson, the talking cat collar is still a prototype, so don’t get your hopes up just yet.
This 3D-printed device is covered with rubber and it also comes in four different colors.
The device also comes with an app that lets cat owners choose their preferred voice for the cat.
It comes with an accent — American or British– and a woman or man’s speaking voice.
But still, since the device does not connect to your cat’s brain, it’s considered unreliable. It would be just exciting to think that you have a cat at home that talks. The product just launched in New Zealand and the U.S.
