Does your cat tweet?

Twitter For Cats: Does your cat tweet? It will soon. Sony Computer Science Labs exhibited a new lifelogging device for cats. It’s got a camera, a GPS and other sensors that allow your cat to archive random events throughout the day. When your cat eats, the system tweets, “This tastes good.”

Yes, we’re talking about letting your cat tweet about its exciting life. The device is equipped with a camera, accelerometer, and GPS chip. It’s able to transfer data to a PC via Bluetooth, after which the comments will be posted on Twitter. In case you’re wondering, this device doesn’t magically read your cat’s mind, rather it can post any of the 11 phrases available, such as “This tastes good” when the cat is eating something, or “Meal tastes better after a walk” if the cat takes a stroll after eating. We’re not entirely sure why you’d want to read predefined tweets by your cat, but if you’re really attached to it, maybe this might be something you’ve been wanting for a long time. The device itself weighs about 5 percent of a cat’s weight, can be attached to a collar, and hopefully doesn’t interfere too much with your cat’s life.

Okay, so why?
