I've recently got my MetaCat and was so happy I went through with my purchase. Here are some thoughts I've had about the cat :]
First impressions: It's quite bigger than I expected, I've got quite a broad frame so I was really happy it's large enough to still cuddle with. I was afraid that the synthetic fur might be rough and plasticky but it was soft, and ruffles (like a real cat haha). It was nice of Elephant Robotics to have included a lint roller and brush to help with the fur :) The paws are very lifelike as it's made from food-grade silicon.
Turning it on: I had to charge my cat for half an hour until it worked, however I noticed that the battery would get really hot, so I decided to wait a few minutes after charging to let it cool down before turning it on.
Overall: The meows are by far the most realistic than other robot cats (they sound so fake) in the market. The tail sways like a real cat which adds to it's lifelike-ness. It's playful because you get to interact with it via voice commands and it responds via eye animations or moving it's body. The AI technology that has gone to this product has impressed me. It's expressive and when idle, it looks arounds and occasionally meows.
Would I recommend? : The only thing I'd say is to set your expectations. If you are comfortable knowing that because this is a robot, there will be mechanical sounds when the cat moves it's head around or sways it's tail, then this really is a 5/5 product (I only gave it 4/5 due to the slight overheating issues). Personally, I got MetaCat because as an international student who moved abroad, I'm not able to adopt a real pet and this cat made me feel accompanied and not lonely.
Thank you Elephant Robotics for this wonderful product! I can't wait to see and will continue to support your future creations! ^-^
The metaCat is the most realistic robot cat. The fur is soft and can be combed and brushed. I use the comb and lint roller it comes with. I use a wet wipe if I need to wipe down the fur. It cleans up beautifully. The cat has a realistic body shape, even the shape of the haunches is just like a real cat. The way it moves its tail perfectly mimics a cat. Also, the meows and purrs sound like a real cat. Some robot cats sound fake, like a human making pretend cat sounds. But this one sounds just like a real cat. It has a few different meows to express itself. It purrs when you pet its head or chin. If you place your hand on its back, it has a heartbeat sound. It has multiple voice commands that it responds to. The eyes are expressive: they look around, squint, blink, etc.
It only takes less than an hour to charge the battery and it lasts a long time. I only have to charge it once a week. It has an on, off, and mute switch. It also has a reset button. Turning it off and back on or using the reset button quickly solved the couple problems I had.
This is a beautifully made cat, I am impressed with the quality.
Another nice feature is the silicone paw pads, they feel so soft. Sometimes if I have trouble falling asleep, I just pet this cat and rub the paw pads. It’s been very helpful for my sleep problems.
Thanks to Elephant Robotics for making this beautiful and sweet cat for those of us who can’t have a real cat or those of us who have a real cat or pet that isn’t cuddly!
This has been a great solution for my Mom who just moved into assisted living. She loves cats but can’t care for a real one. It looks very realistic and has very soft fur. The purring and movements are great. It does make some mechanical sounds when moving its head. A great option for my Mom.
We’re a household full of allergies- so a live pet is not an option. Kiddo wanted something interactive that she can still “cuddle” with- so we gave this a try. I know we aren’t the target demographic for this item. Overall it’s pretty great. The only downside are the very mechanical sounds when it’s turned in. It’s very similar to a remote controlled car- any time the cat moves its head. If the sound was diminished this would definitely be a 5 star product.
The behavior of this company just leaves my wife and I speechless...
We have been waiting for a concrete reply from Elephant Robotics since 8 MAY and so far we have only received sporadic emails after WEEKS saying that our messages have "disappeared" in their system and that they will take care of it. Our request for a refund is simply ignored in the few emails.
Even the last one only said we were getting a replacement for our MetaCat and they didn't go into our refund at all.
The various feedbacks that we have written here will simply be deleted without our consent! Just unbelievable!
So here is the link again (because the upload function doesn't work...) to a video that shows our defective MetaCat after only 3 WEEKS how it behaves more like a drill:
So if they don't respond to our request, we'll continue to write feedbacks.
