Last week we were all pretty excited to find out about the new hot fashion trend that is animatronic cat ears. Finally, something we were already so passionate about is in style! So chic! So now! Haute cature! Or SO WE THOUGHT! As Heidi Klum used to say on The Fashion Designer, “In fashion that combines robotics and plush toy cat parts, one day you’re in and the next — you’re out, in the context of some blog post that’s talking about it.” Today that the thing pushing out our animatronic cat ears is a big cat mask that you can put right over your human face and control the eyes and mouth with your human eyes and mouth. THAT SOUNDS MUCH BETTER, AND SO CAREFULLY EXPLAINED! The only downside, oddly enough, is that they haven’t incorporated the ears yet. Once again proving that we’ll NEVER be able to get everything we want, only grasping at pieces of our complete dream: a full cat suit that transforms us into a cat 4real.

Of course they had to add in a part about how they will use this technology to help sick people someday. Uh, yeah, WE ASSUMED THAT. That’s how you ruin all of our fun every time! Don’t you think that’s going to stop us from talking about it as if it’s all as useless as it seems! I’ll see you all in your cat masks at New York’s Fashion Time 2k6! (Via Neatorama.)

  1. Can you get toxoplasmosis from a furry? I’m about to find out!

  2. Someone is going to have some massive orgasms thanks to this important technology.

  3. I don’t know guys. It really looks like the image on the screen behind them reveals the fact that this technology is mostly going to be used for creepy ransom videos.

  4. These are scientists. These are the best minds of our generation. I know not every scientist can be looking for ways to cure cancer all the time, but imagine if your whole family was scientists and you had that one cousin who, instead of medical research or technological advancements or even bio-weapon engineering, made animatronic cat suits. You’d all be hanging around drinking 150 proof home made alcohol and doing the cool experiments like decalcifying eggs to try and suck them into empty wine bottles to recalcify them, and then she’d come in and everyone would get really awkward and quiet until your mom, maybe, politely asked what she is working on right now and everyone knows the party’s over and it’s gearing up to be a loooooong night.

  5. You heard Kelly, Animatronic Cat Ears. Hit the road.
