The Petit Qoobo is a new miniature version of the therapeutic pet robot that will offer users a discreet way to alleviate stress and maintain wellness throughout the day.
The cushion-like robot features a furry exterior that's soft and inviting to touch, and is a healthier alternative for allergy sufferers who can't keep dogs or cats around. This also makes the robot pillow perfect for those who live in residences that don't allow pets to let them enjoy the benefits of pet ownership without breaking any rules.
The Petit Qoobo will respond in a similar manner to cats and dogs when petted thanks to a built-in accelerometer that will offer vibrational feedback that mimics purring. The tail on the unit will also wag ever so slightly with delight for further positive reinforcement.
