Most people get our weather from our phones or morning news which let’s be honest, is neither exciting or cute. We can do better. The Nyankei Speaking Cat Thermometer is a little cat that will tell you if you need a coat or not, provided you can speak Japanese.
This is a little device that will give you the temperature when you “pet it” (by pressing down on its head twice). If you just pet it once, then you’ll get a random comment about the weather. It knows 90 different phrases for a wide variety of interactions to brighten your day. Every hour it will also speak automatically.
The downside of this adorable gadget is that it only speaks Japanese so if you aren’t very good with that language, what this cat has to say will be mostly nonsense. Still it has some nonverbal ways to communicate. Mainly with its tail. If it is glowing red, it’s too hot! Yellow is ok and green is nice out. When it’s time for bed it goes into standby mode. It comes in calico or gray and you can get your own for $59.
