Interactive Sound Object That Purrs, Meows and Hisses
I would love a pet but they aren’t allowed where I live. I’m not convinced this would fill the void but its a fun project nonetheless! Good find from Laughing Squid:
In 2014 Emily Groves, Jakub Pollág and Paula Arntzen, and Jackie Ford, students at the Royal College of Art in London, created “Mew”, an interactive sound object covered with fur that responds when it is approached with purring, then when stroked with caterwauling meows and to roughness with hisses.
