Automatic litter box

Automatic litter box

Going on holiday and have no one to look after your cat? South Korean startup PurrSong displayed an automatic litter box called the LavvieBot which auto-cleans and auto-refills.

After your cat does its business inside the machine and has left, LavvieBot noiselessly pushes a rake through the litter before hurling a few handfuls of clean litter in the box.

It can even send you text notifications when your cat uses the toilet or when the litter storage or the waste bin is full.

"This is clearly marketed towards cat owners who don't have the time to take care of their cat all the time, or they just want the freedom of not having to clean out the litter box every day," said PurrSong marketing manager Heaven Nam.

Can earbuds translate?

The Netherlands-based startup Travis presented small earbuds that are capable of translating conversations between people speaking different languages in real time.

The Artificial Intelligence-powered device synchs to computing in the cloud to translate any combination of 105 languages.

You can select the two languages using your voice and then just start to speak. You will hear the translated voice almost immediately via the earbuds.
