Instagramming Cats, And Everything Else You Missed Yesterday

Instagramming Cats, and Everything Else You Missed Yesterday

Cats posting to Instagram, Microsoft invading Android tablets, LG's goes metal on the G4. This is all the news and rumours from the past 24 hours, all on BitStream.

We have reached peak technology. Pack it up. We're done. Whiskas, a company known more for feline food than feline wearables, is working on a "Catstacam", which is about as horrible as it sounds. According to PetaPixel, the Catstacam takes six pictures a minute(!) and posts them to your cat's own Instagram account as soon as your kitty is within Wi-Fi range. To make sure you don't have about a zillion picture of Skittles taking a nap, the device only turns on when it detects movement. The future is here, and your cat is going to have more Instagram followers than you. [YouTube via PetaPixel]
