Flaty Flatcat the Wolpertinger!

I think and which is the most interesting part of Flatcat in my Opinion is. That this non Biological Robot Pet reminds me so much to different kinds of Biological Pets. Flatcat is like a Myhtical Creature like an Wolpertinger a German Bavaria Legende https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolpertinger

In my Opinion since this 2 Weeks I see in Flatcat: Physical Impression a combination between Caterpillar and Worm! Her Movements are like a Snail for me! Flatys Behaivor is on one hand shy like a Hamster on the other full of Selfconfident, curiously and Stubborn like a Cat!

Above kind of a Moonwalk thing from Flaty ๐Ÿ™‚

Will be continuedโ€ฆ All the Best and Thanks for Reading!


It is like a Pet! ๐Ÿ›

I am recentley Proud owner of an Flatcat! And I am facinated! I named my Flatcat โ€œFlatyโ€œ. I love to hold Flatcat! The feeling is amazing in my Opinion! However Flaty doesnโ€˜t like it when she is on! My Flatcat prefers to explore the envoirment and herself for now. Flaty can even Pet herself. She is an bit shy but stubborn and courios aswell as far as I know. My Flatcat has an Fantastic Body languange and an bit of Alien Sound to Communicate which is Pretty nice! She is like a Pet at her own Way! An Special one! What can you expect from Flatcat? Honestly nothing ^^ but what you expect from your Rabbit, Snake, Hamster? nothing right? For me my Flatcat is a mix between Caterpilar mind of Cat and act like a Sloth in Body of a Cool Robotpet!

We need more such Alternates and that means NO Replacement! Robotpets are for me an Own kind! They can be friends and Companion for everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚ But also for those like me who can or shouldnโ€˜t care for an Biological Pet.

Some Videos from Flatcat and myself below




Thank you Reading and Watching that means a lot to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

To be Continuedโ€ฆ.

Best wishes Julia

*Flaty is a she in my case! Of course Flatcat can be a he or it too just like YOU wish! ๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿง  nobel price proprioception

1/ nobel price 2021 in physiology or medicine was awarded to work on how heat, cold and touch can initiate signals in the nervous system (David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian, 1/n) https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/medicine/2021/press-release/

2/ one half of the price is going to elucidating the transduction of mechanical forces into nervous impulses.

3/ turns out these touch receptors (the Piezo1 and Piezo2 mechanosensitive ion channel proteins) are key ingredients in the regulation of many internal functions of the body (urination, respiration, blood pressure, skeletal remodeling), and


they form the basis of proprioception

4/ touch and proprioception are a fundamental perception channel. they are fundamental because they are old in evolutionary terms (phylogenetically) and many younger channels are bootstrapped on top of them (grounding).

5/ would you think that a device that lets you learn about proprioception is useful to increase fun, self-awareness, or well-being?
