Sony has developed a cat collar that tweets. The company’s Computer Science Lab recently demonstrated a prototype of Cat@Log, equipped with a still camera, GPS, accelerometer, and Bluetooth, capable of reporting minute-by-minute activities on Twitter.

About 11 preprogrammed phrases are triggered on Twitter based on the cat’s actions. For example, when the cat eats, the system tweets “this tastes good.” Some of the activities that trigger tweets include eating, facial gestures, jumping, running, and sleeping.
